    Open Knowledge Maps - Discovery for an Open Science
    Abstract: With 3 million research papers published each year, discovery becomes increasingly difficult. Open Knowledge Maps is a revolutionary search engine that enables researchers, students, and practitioners to quickly identify relevant resources. Instead of long, unstructured lists of search results, we create visual overviews of research topics, so-called knowledge maps. On users can create knowledge maps based on 150+ million scientific outputs. Our services have been met with a lot of enthusiasm, and so far we have had more than half a million users from all around the world. In addition, we welcomed more than 1,500 participants in training events. Open Knowledge Maps is a charitable non-profit built on the principles of open science. All of our content, data and software are openly licensed, and we invite our members to co-create the platform with us, making it both community-driven and community-owned.
