Linked Open Data (LOD): One Billion Metadata Facts Now Available on Springer Nature’s SciGraph Platform
From a Springer Nature Announcement:
SciGraph, the Linked Open Data (LOD) platform launched by Springer Nature in March 2017, now holds over one billion metadata statements about content published by Springer Nature and links to established external datasets.
The LOD platform aggregates data sources from content published across Springer Nature covering an array of subjects and scientific disciplines. Its search and navigation functionality allows users to explore the connections between bibliographic metadata statements labeled by a range of categories including author, institution, fields of study, research grants, funders, conferences, locations.
Citations, patents and clinical trials will be added in 2018.
The majority of these datasets are freely accessible and provided in a way that allows experts to analyse downloaded datasets using their own software, or by using the new SciGraph Data Explorer online.
