Today, I am very proud to announce a milestone for Open Knowledge Maps. 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!
