[I am including Paola's off-list reply and my answer to her with her
permission, as this discussion may be of interest to the list]
thank you for your feedback and for the nice words. We're are connected
to the Bielefeld Academic Search Engine (BASE), which indexes more than
115 million scientific documents . The only catch is that BASE is
limited to a metadata search. So while there is a significant amount of
the world's scientific knowledge available through Open Knowledge Maps,
you cannot submit very detailed queries at this point.
We would love to integrate Google Scholar, Academia or ResearchGate. But
the reality is that they are all commercial products and do _not_ allow
you to access their content programmatically - and thus I do not
consider them to be open repositories. This is why we need to build up
and support the digital open science infrastructure, otherwise we cannot
make innovative services happen for us.
We have now partnered with full text provider and open repository CORE
 and will explore possibilities of fulltext search for Open Knowledge
Maps. We are also working with ContentMine  to explore how concepts
identified by text and data mining could help in the process.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks for sharing
the tool looks great, and useful
But the sources are very limited, the system does not generate maps.
what index does it use?
how can the index be expanded to include say google scholar, academia
and researchgate and other open repositories?
I ll be happy to use it and promote it when it generates accurate maps
