We are pleased to invite you to join us at the 5th International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications (WOSP 2016), which we will be held in conjunction with JCDL 2016 in Newark, NJ.
We are also pleased to announce that Michael Kurtz will give a keynote talk at the workshop. Michael is an astronomer and computer scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Massachusetts and the founder and project scientist of the Smithsonian/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS). The details of his keynote are available at https://wosp.core.ac.uk/jcdl2016/#mkurtz.
Our presenter from Semantic Scholar unfortunately couldn’t join us for the workshop.

Digital libraries that store scientific publications are becoming increasingly central to the research process. They are not only used for traditional tasks, such as finding and storing research outputs, but also as a source for discovering new research trends or evaluating research excellence. With the current growth of scientific publications deposited in digital libraries, it is no longer sufficient to provide only access to content. To aid research, it is especially important to leverage the potential of text and data mining technologies to improve the process of how research is being done.
This workshop aims to bring together people from different backgrounds who:
(a) are interested in analysing and mining databases of scientific publications
(b) develop systems that enable such analysis and mining of scientific databases (especially those who run databases of publications)
(c) who develop novel technologies that improve the way research is being done.
The topics of the workshop will be organised around the following themes:
1. The whole ecosystem of infrastructures including repositories, aggregators, text-and data-mining facilities, impact monitoring tools, datasets, services and APIs that enable analysis of large volumes of scientific publications.
2. Semantic enrichment of scientific publications by means of text and data mining, crowdsourcing or other methods.
3. Analysis of large databases of scientific publications to identify research trends, high impact, cross-fertilisation between disciplines, research excellence etc.
Topics of interest relevant to theme 1 include but are not limited to:
- Infrastructures including repositories, aggregators, text-and data-mining facilities, impact monitoring tools, datasets, services and APIs for accessing scientific publications and/or research data.
Topics of interest relevant to theme 2 include but are not limited to:
- Novel information extraction and text-mining approaches to semantic enrichment of publications.
- Automatic categorization and clustering of scientific publications.
- New methods and models for connecting and interlinking scientific publications.
- Models for semantically representing and annotating publications.
- Semantically enriching/annotating publications by crowdsourcing.
Topics of interest relevant to theme 3 include but are not limited to:
- New methods, models and innovative approaches for measuring impact of publications.
- New methods for measuring performance of researchers.
- Evaluating impact of research groups.
- Methods for identifying research trends and cross-fertilization between research disciplines.
- Application and case studies of mining from scientific databases and publications.
- Improving the infrastructure of repositories to support the development and integration of new impact and performance metrics.
3. EXPECTED AUDIENCE
The workshop on Mining Scientific Publications aims to bring together researchers, digital library developers and practitioners from government and industry to address the current challenges in the domain of mining scientific publications.
