Press Release: OpenMinTed Paving the Way for Text and Data Mining in Science

Background: Open Science era + the sheer volume of scholarly works (about 2.5 mi peer reviewed publications every year in English alone)

What OpenMinTeD is about: Researchers, Open Access publishers, librarians, repository managers and SMEs can now easily harness the power of text and data mining (TDM) for scientific content. The recently launched OpenMinTeD infrastructure, funded by the European  Commission H2020 Grant 654021, a preamble to the European Open Science Cloud, enables the registration and deployment of existing TDM tools and applications, the connection to OA scientific content, allowing researchers to seamlessly  discover, share, analyse and re-use knowledge. All, well presented and operating on a cloud infrastructure. It makes this possible through the OpenMinTeD Interoperability Guidelines, which address interoperability aspects for content and services.

Technical vs. legal: Catering for legal interoperability, OpenMinTeD has elaborated a  license compatibility matrix  to investigate the compatibility among licenses on content, software and services, a  service that may be used in other data infrastructure as well.

Services: Key OpenMinTeD services include:

Way forward: The OpenMinTeD consortium commits to continue the operation and invites you all to send any inquiries by email to Androniki Pavlidou (email).
