GrapAL: Querying Semantic Scholar's Literature Graph

  title={GrapAL: Querying Semantic Scholar's Literature Graph},
  author={Christine Betts and Joanna L. Power and Waleed Ammar},
We introduce GrapAL (Graph database of Academic Literature), a versatile tool for exploring and investigating scientific literature which satisfies a variety of use cases and information needs requested by researchers. At the core of GrapAL is a Neo4j graph database with an intuitive schema and a simple query language. In this paper, we describe the basic elements of GrapAL, how to use it, and several use cases such as finding experts on a given topic for peer reviewing, discovering indirect…

Research Exchange-A Collaborative Paper Annotation Tool
It was found that collaboration using annotations was extremely beneficial for users which were in line with the requirements, development, and efficacy of the online research paper tool-Research Exchange.
Common Conversational Community Prototype: Scholarly Conversational Assistant
This paper proposes to develop and operate a prototype conversational search system for scholarly activities, which would serve as a useful tool, a means to create datasets, and a platform for running evaluation challenges by groups across the community.

When is ACL's Deadline? A Scientific Conversational Agent
Our conversational agent UKP-ATHENA assists NLP researchers in finding and exploring scientific literature, identifying relevant authors, planning or post-processing conference visits, and preparing


A Web-scale system for scientific knowledge exploration
This work presents a large-scale system to identify hundreds of thousands of scientific concepts, tag these identified concepts to hundreds of millions of scientific publications, and build a six-level concept hierarchy with a subsumption-based model.
CL Scholar: The ACL Anthology Knowledge Graph Miner
We present CL Scholar, the ACL Anthology knowledge graph miner to facilitate high-quality search and exploration of current research progress in the computational linguistics community. In contrast
Cypher: An Evolving Query Language for Property Graphs
This work describes Cypher 9, which is the first version of the language governed by the openCypher Implementers Group, and introduces the language by example, and provides a formal semantic definition of the core read-query features of Cypher, including its variant of the property graph data model.
Content-Based Citation Recommendation
It is shown empirically that, although adding metadata improves the performance on standard metrics, it favors self-citations which are less useful in a citation recommendation setup and released an online portal for citation recommendation based on this method.
Modeling Scientific Impact with Topical Influence Regression
Topical influence is introduced, a quantitative measure of the extent to which an article tends to spread its topics to the articles that cite it, and how ideas propagate between articles is studied.
Learning to Predict Citation-Based Impact Measures
This work finds that existing probabilistic models for paper citations can predict measures of scientific impact for papers and authors, namely citation rates and h-indices, with surprising accuracy, even 10 years into the future.
Annotated Corpus of Scientific Conference's Homepages for Information Extraction
A new corpus that contains 943 homepages of scientific conferences, 14794 including subpages, with annotations of interesting information: name of a conference, its abbreviation, place, and several important dates is presented.
Predicting a Scientific Community’s Response to an Article
It is demonstrated that text features significantly improve accuracy of predictions over metadata features like authors, topical categories, and publication venues.
A Utility Model of Authors in the Scientific Community
A probabilistic model of some of the important aspects of the writing of a scientific paper is introduced: that authors have individual preferences, that writing a paper requires trading off among the preferences of authors as well as extrinsic rewards in the form of community response to their papers.
Stylometric Analysis of Scientific Articles
We present an approach to automatically recover hidden attributes of scientific articles, such as whether the author is a native English speaker, whether the author is a male or a female, and whether
