Over recent years, there has been a growing interest in extracting information automatically or semi-automatically from the scientific literature.

This paper describes a novel ontology-based interactive information extraction (OBIIE) framework and a specific OBIIE system.

We describe how this system enables life scientists to make ad hoc queries similar to using a standard search engine, but where the results are obtained in a database format similar to a pre-programmed information extraction engine. We present a case study in which the system was evaluated for extracting co-factors from EMBASE and MEDLINE.
