New publication: A Framework for Collaborative Curation of Neuroscientific Literature

Women looking at computer screenFrontiers in Neuroinformatics has just released a new paper by O’Reilly, Iavarone and Hill. It describes a systematic framework to curate neuroscientific literature. This framework provides an easier and more reliable way to integrate published data into neuronal models. The work was done in the context of the OpenMinTeD and Blue Brain projects. 

Providing insight into the structure of scientific papers

How is a scientific paper structured and how related is it to other papers? These are some of the things that Iana Atanassova of the University of Bourgogne focuses on in her research. She uses text and data mining (TDM) to study full-text scientific articles. Studying these papers can be a challenge, as they are usually in a format that is hard to process.

White paper on community requirements for text and data mining

Text and data mining is important to different scientific communities, but what do these different user communities need to mine succesfully?  One of the aims of workpackage 4 of the OpenMinTeD project is to collect these requirements. This was done using  a combination of methods, including online surveys and focus groups. The results are summarized in the  ‘White paper on OpenMinTed Community Requirements’ that was finished last week.
