today, I am very proud to announce a milestone for Open Knowledge Maps,
the visual interface to the world's scientific knowledge. Thanks to an
outstanding team and continued support by our partners and advisors, we
have added two major content sources: the Directory of Open Access
Journals (DOAJ) with more than 2.3 million articles and PubMed with more
than 26.5 million articles. Taking into account a certain overlap
between the two sources, we can now credibly state that one can create
maps based on 28 million papers. That’s a content pool that is 175 times
larger than in the previous iteration using PLOS (about 160,000 articles).
We have also completely overhauled our design & overall presentation and
improved the user experience considerably. In addition, we have included
the open annotation software Hypothes.is in our PDF preview.
We believe that this is a major step towards revolutionizing the way we
discover research. There are many new things to try out and explore – we
are looking forward to your feedback and suggestions!
