Abstract: The BioCreative V.5 task on technical interoperability and performance of annotation servers evaluated the provision of named entity annotations through web services. This paper describes Neji, a web-services ready text processing and annotation framework, and shows how its modular and flexible architecture allowed simple adaptation to the requirements of the task. The configured service offers the annotation of eight concept types through five dictionaries and three machine-learning models, and has support for a variety of input and output formats.
