Making research information open and accessible can lead to many great possibilities and outcomes for science. One of them is the possibility to mine text and data.
With TDM being a powerful tool to discover hidden and new knowledge in existing text and data, and therefore to greatly advance science, TDM should not be and is not impossible! However, TDM is often perceived as being too difficult, too technical, and therefore impossible.
OpenMinTeD is building an online infrastructure that makes content much easier to mine, by making existing text mining tools discoverable and interoperable.
- The infrastructure brings together text and data registries/databases;
- It will develop a standard layer, that makes it easy to find, and mine, text and data from all over the world;
- OpenMinTeD will also train researchers, librarians, text miners, eInfrastructure builders, policy makers and legal advisors to use its platform;
- OpenMinTeD will provide guidance on legal, policy, technical and organisational issues.
LIBER leads the tasks on Community Engagement and Sustainability, and plays a large role in the Support and Training activities.
