Finding Better Ways of Mining Scientific Publications

TDM Workshop

Mendeley is supporting the 3rd edition of the International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications, which will take place on the 12th September 2014 in London. The event will bring together researchers and practitioners from across industry, government, digital libraries and academia to address the latest challenges in the field of mining data from scientific publications.

Kris Jack, Chief Data Scientist at Mendeley, is part of the organizing Committee, which also includes The Open University and The European Library. Following a very successful call for papers, he is now looking forward to a very busy and productive day of presentations and discussions:

“We’ve had a record number of high-quality submissions this year, so were really spoiled for choice in putting together the agenda, which combines long papers, short papers, demonstrations and various presentations. We also worked with Elsevier to engage directly with the research community, which is really fantastic.”

As part of that ongoing outreach, Gemma Hersh, Policy Director at Elsevier, will be giving a brief presentation and answering questions from the participants regarding the company’s recently updated Text and Data Mining policy, and how it can best support the evolving needs of the research community.

As in previous years, this workshop is run in conjunction with the Digital Libraries conference – DL 2014 – and participants can register on the City University London website to attend the entire conference or just the workshops/tutorials.
