At Open Knowledge Maps, our aim is to improve the visibility of scientific knowledge.
We partner with funders, research organizations and infrastructures that share our goals to develop innovative open science projects.
Get in touch, if you are interested in such a collaboration. Currently, we are looking for dedicated funding for the workplan set out in our roadmap.
Biological invasions are on the rise, and their global impacts on ecosystems, economies and human health are a major challenge. Invasion science is critical to mitigate invader impacts, yet due to the strong increase of data and information in this area, it has become difficult to acquire and maintain an overview of the field. To address this challenge, we develop an interactive atlas of invasion science in collaboration with FU Berlin and Wikidata.
TRIPLE is a EU project funded under the Horizon 2020 framework. TRIPLE's goal is to create a comprehensive free and open discovery solution for the social sciences and humanities (SSH). Under the lead of Huma-Num (CNRS), a consortium of 18 partners from 12 countries will develop GoTriple as a core service of OPERAS and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
In this crowd-sourcing project called Ideenbox (in English: Ideas Box), LBG Open Innovation in Science Center (OIS Center) collects unsolved health issues from citizens based in Austria. Open Knowledge Maps will provide a visualization of all collected research questions. The knowledge map will be made publicly available and it will periodically be updated to show the latest crowd-sourcing results.
With eLife's backing, we are performing a necessary refactoring of the Open Knowledge Maps frontend. The refactoring improves the serviceability, reusability and structure of our frontend. The aim is to make it easier to introduce new functionality crucial to fulfilling important use cases, such as integrating Open Knowledge Maps into user workflows, enabling future integrations (e.g. of dataset indices), and reaching our goal of a collaborative discovery environment.
CoVis is an ongoing project in collaboration with ReFigure funded by EOSCSecretariat. CoVis enables scientists to kick-start their COVID-19 research by providing a curated knowledge map of seminal works on COVID-19 from eight critical areas of biomedical research. The knowledge map is constantly evolving thanks to the collective editing of subject-matter experts.
LinkedCat+ is an ongoing project funded by the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW) to make the early proceedings of the OeAW accessible, discoverable and reusable. LinkedCat+ will provide open access fulltexts and bibliographic catalogue data as linked open data, and allow for visual exploration of this data.
CRIS Vis II is an ongoing project in collaboration with the Open Innovation in Science Center of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG). The second iteration of CRIS Vis enables researchers, practitioners and citizens to explore crowd-sourced research questions related to accidental injuries.
VIPER was an OpenAIRE tender project to create a prototype of the Visual Project Explorer that provides overviews of over 2.4 million research projects indexed by OpenAIRE. VIPER enables funders, institutions and researchers to systematically explore a project’s output, and to understand its impact in different areas.
CRIS Vis on mental health was a project in collaboration with the Open Innovation in Science Center of the Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft (LBG). It enables researchers, practitioners and citizens to explore crowd-sourced research questions related to mental health.
