Virtuous Cycle

We are once again pleased to publish a special issue focused on text and data mining of scientific publications. The program committee of the 5th International Workshop on Mining Scientific Publications, recently held in conjunction with JCDL 2016, has selected a set of papers from that conference to constitute our September/October issue. An expert overview of the papers and topics can be found in the Guest Editorial by Drahomira Herrmannova and Petr Knoth.

This is the fourth D-Lib issue in five years dedicated to this topic and the tools and approaches continue to grow, reflecting in part the growth of available repositories of both articles and associated data. The potential of such a virtuous cycle, with the increasing availability of scholarly content yielding increasingly ambitious efforts to analyze, validate, and reuse that content, is a positive development across the digital library landscape.
