An massive text and data mining (TDM) facility in Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University is generating much excitement because it could sweep aside major obstacles in the way of TDM today. My story
TDM NEWS: "The plan to mine the world’s research papers. A giant data store quietly being built in India could free vast swathes of science for computer analysis — but is it legal?"
Carl Malamud wants to free paywalled scientific literature - and he thinks he has a legal way to do it.
This scientist has built a gigantic data store from 73 million journal articles 👀 He hopes it will open up vast swathes of paywalled literature 👉 |
"The plan to mine the world’s research papers." Promoting the increase and diffusion of knowledge is a moral imperative and crucial to the future of science.
Some of our work featured in Nature News, More for potential controversy than results so far! But I strongly believe that knowledge extraction from literature has huge potential. #OpenScience Thanks
Very exciting and appropriately cautious. Thanks to and . #mining #tdm
Re-up: A fascinating project to mine paywalled papers without breaching publisher copyright. It's near impossible to do text mining on this scale anywhere in the world today.
Though I have been misquoted in this article (I didn't use the word #fairuse, as #India has #fairdealing exception and not fairuse!), my position has been that the concerned #TDM activity is legal in India for two reasons- 1/2

Good long-read on the important #openaccess work that is doing in India. This is an excellent primer for anyone interested in understanding the tensions between text and data mining and #copyright.
The amazing access to knowledge work of continues in India where the constitution provides a copyright exception for educational use
"Malamud envisages, researchers could crawl over its text and data with computer software, scanning through the world’s scientific literature to pull out insights without actually reading the text." Brilliant or ignorant an naive?
More pioneering work by as he continues to push the envelope of open access, with support from

Long piece today on Carl Malamud's work in India to accelerate non-consumptive text & data mining (TDM) research 🇮🇳 TDM in the US, UK & EU faces too much legal complexity which puts up huge barriers to research. Could India now lead the way?

Fascinating article from on text mining the research literature "The plan to mine the world’s research papers"
has a plan to mine the world’s research papers. Wow! The article asks "is it legal?" It would be totally legal for US researchers to extract metadata from an overseas Sci-Hub repository. See .
Fascinating article on the JNU Data Depot, a project where researchers will be able to crawl text and data from 73 million journal articles, opening up paywalled literature for analysis
Hard to believe that amassing a database of copyrighted content in India for TDM use without publisher permission is legal.
This article about mining science papers touches on so many important things to think about: - Law vs Legislation - Computer vs. human access to services - How much potential new knowledge is locked in old text - Privately publishing public funded research

Although open-access movements in Europe and the United States are valuable, ... I don’t think we can wait for Europe and the United States to solve that problem because the need is so pressing here. - Carl Malamud

Wouldn't this be awesome? Go, Carl Malamund!
