assessing scientific research papers with knowledge graphs

Bibliothek Forschung und Praxis

The transfer of knowledge has not changed fundamentally for many hundreds of years: It is usually document-based-formerly printed on paper as a classic essay and nowadays as PDF. With around 2.5 million new research contributions every year, researchers drown in a flood of pseudo-digitized PDF publications. As a result research is seriously weakened. In this article, we argue for representing scholarly contributions in a structured and semantic way as a knowledge graph. The advantage is that information represented in a knowledge graph is readable by machines and humans. As an example, we give an overview on the Open Research Knowledge Graph (ORKG), a service implementing this approach. For creating the knowledge graph representation, we rely on a mixture of manual (crowd/expert sourcing) and (semi-)automated techniques. Only with such a combination of human and machine intelligence, we can achieve the required quality of the representation to allow for novel exploration and assista...

Over the last century, we observe a steady and exponential growth of scientific publications globally. The overwhelming amount of available literature makes a holistic analysis of the research within a field and between fields based on manual inspection impossible. Automatic techniques to support the process of literature review are required to find the epistemic and social patterns that are embedded in scientific publications. In computer sciences, new tools have been developed to deal with large volumes of data. In particular, deep learning techniques open the possibility of automated end-to-end models to project observations to a new, low-dimensional space where the most relevant information of each observation is highlighted. Using deep learning to build new representations of scientific publications is a growing but still emerging field of research. The aim of this paper is to discuss the potential and limits of deep learning for gathering insights about scientific research articles. We focus on document-level embeddings based on the semantic and relational aspects of articles, using Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Graph Neural Networks (GNNs). We explore the different outcomes generated by those techniques. Our results show that using NLP we can encode a semantic space of articles, while GNN we enable us to build a relational space where the social practices of a research community are also encoded.

PubMed® is an essential resource for the medical domain, but useful concepts are either difficult to extract or are ambiguous, which has significantly hindered knowledge discovery. To address this issue, we constructed a PubMed knowledge graph (PKG) by extracting bio-entities from 29 million PubMed abstracts, disambiguating author names, integrating funding data through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) ExPORTER, collecting affiliation history and educational background of authors from ORCID®, and identifying fine-grained affiliation data from MapAffil. Through the integration of these credible multi-source data, we could create connections among the bio-entities, authors, articles, affiliations, and funding. Data validation revealed that the BioBERT deep learning method of bio-entity extraction significantly outperformed the state-of-the-art models based on the F1 score (by 0.51%), with the author name disambiguation (AND) achieving an F1 score of 98.09%. PKG can trigger broa...

The term "scientific publication" includes several types of scientific communications and digital broadcasts that scientific researchers make of their work towards their peers and an audience of specialists. These publications describe in detail the studies or experiments carried out and the conclusions drawn from them by the authors. They undergo an examination of the value of the results and the rigor of the scientific method used for the work carried out. In this paper we evaluated the quality of a scientific article on the subject (topic), based on its citations and where is it cited, we based on the Topic modeling theme with the choice of LDA algorithms applied to the corpus Nips (1987-2016) for detecting all subjects of each paper and there citations in a first step then on the citations of each article of the corpus and on the Sentiment Analysis using a lexical based approaches. Then we created a csv file containing the link of each paper with the other cited papers (relation cited-citing), and finally generated a semantic graph between these publications.

We introduce the Semantic Scholar Graph of References in Context (GORC),1 a large contextual citation graph of 81.1M academic publications, including parsed full text for 8.1M open access papers, across broad domains of science. Each paper is represented with rich paper metadata (title, authors, abstract, etc.), and where available: cleaned full text, section headers, figure and table captions, and parsed bibliography entries. In-line citation mentions in full text are linked to their corresponding bibliography entries, which are in turn linked to in-corpus cited papers, forming the edges of a contextual citation graph. To our knowledge, this is the largest publicly available contextual citation graph; the full text alone is the largest parsed academic text corpus publicly available. We demonstrate the ability to identify similar papers using these citation contexts and propose several applications for language modeling and citation-related tasks.

Citation analysis is used in research evaluation exercises around the globe, directly affecting the lives of millions of researchers and the expenditure of billions of dollars. It is therefore crucial to seriously address the problems and limitations that plague it. Central amongst critiques of the common practice of citation analysis has long been that it treats all citations equally, be they crucial to the citing paper or perfunctory. Weighting citations by their value to the citing paper has long been proposed as a theoretically promising solution to this problem. Recitation analysis proposes to tune out the large percentage of perfunctory citations in a paper and tune in on crucial ones when performing citation analysis, by ignoring uni-citations (mentioned just once in a paper) and counting and analyzing only re-citations (used again and again in a citing paper). By focusing on core connections in knowledge networks, re-citation analysis can help research evaluation become more...

We describe a strategy for identifying the universe of research publications relevant to the application and development of artificial intelligence. The approach leverages the arXiv corpus of scientific preprints, in which authors choose subject tags for their papers from a set defined by editors. We compose a functional definition of AI relevance by learning these subjects from paper metadata, and then inferring the arXiv-subject labels of papers in larger corpora: Clarivate Web of Science, Digital Science Dimensions, and Microsoft Academic Graph. This yields predictive classification $F_1$ scores between .75 and .86 for Natural Language Processing (cs.CL), Computer Vision (cs.CV), and Robotics (cs.RO). For a single model that learns these and four other AI-relevant subjects (cs.AI, cs.LG, stat.ML, and cs.MA), we see precision of .83 and recall of .85. We evaluate the out-of-domain performance of our classifiers against other sources of topic information and predictions from altern...

Springer Nature is the main publisher of scientific conferences in Computer Science and produces several well-known series of proceedings books, such as LNCS. The editorial team needs to take critical decisions about which conferences to publish as well as actively scan the horizon for identifying emerging ones. In this short paper, we present the Conference Dashboard, a new web application based on a large knowledge graph of scholarly data (1.3B triples) for assessing scientific conferences and informing editorial decisions.
