AnnotationPress is designed to provide a user friendly tool that helps scientists annotate scientific claims, data, and evidence in HTML and PDF documents. The current version is configured to annotated drug-drug interactions in both full text journal articles and structured product labeling. This is a particularly challenging domain that required the development of several annotation workflows which we think will be useful for for other scientific domains. A key aspect of AnnotationPress is its use of annotation plug-ins which make the tool is easily adaptable to other annotation use cases. Another distinctive feature is that AnnotationPress implements the Micropublication and Open Annotation data standards. These standards specify how to relate annotations in target documents about data, methods, and materials to scientific claims.
