Open Knowledge Maps – A Visual Interface To the World’s Scientific Knowledge
An Open Knowledge Maps visualization presents you with a topical overview for your search term. It is based on the most relevant papers in the chosen library. They use text similarity to create the knowledge maps. The algorithm groups those papers together that have many words in common. The visualization is intended to give you a head start on your literature search. You can also use Open Knowledge Maps to stay up-to-date – just limit your search to the most recent papers in the options. Their Mission includes the following: a) Visual Interface – They are creating a visual interface to the world’s scientific knowledge that can be used by anyone in order to dramatically improve the discoverability of research results; b) Revolutionize Discovery – They are going to provide a large-scale system of open, interactive and interlinked knowledge maps spanning all fields of research; and c) Share. Use. Collaborate. – They will develop a space for collective knowledge organization and exploration, connecting researchers, students, librarians, journalists, practitioners and citizens. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™. This will be added to Academic and Scholar Search Engines and Sources white paper.
