Launch of TIM Open Access containing the Covid-19 open research dataset (CORD-19)

JRC launched a new text mining tool 'TIM Open Access' containing the Covid-19 open research dataset (CORD-19). TIM Open Access is open to anyone and contains data related to science and innovation that are free of access.

TIM Open Access is open to anyone and contains data related to science and innovation that are free of access. For this launch, it contains Semantic Scholars, Cordis, and Patstat. Additional open access datasets will be added in the future.

In addition, considering that it is sometimes difficult for researchers on viruses to be at the same time experts in text mining, or simply have the time to do both, we have indexed the CORD-19 dataset and integrated it into TIM Open Access. The CORD-19 dataset has been put together by the Allen institute for AI and some of its partners (https://allenai.org/data/cord-19). This open dataset contains more than 50K scientific publications on coronaviruses and it is updated once a week. 40K of the publications are full text to allow for text mining. This dataset is now accessible to anyone wishing to extract knowledge from these full text articles. Users can search the CORD-19 dataset through our system and automatically access various visualisations on keywords, organisations, countries, and others. Have a look here at the CORD-19!
