1. INTRODUCTION

Digital libraries that store scientific publications are becoming increasingly central to the research process. They are not only used for traditional tasks, such as finding and storing research outputs, but also as a source for discovering new research trends or evaluating research excellence. With the current growth of scientific publications deposited in digital libraries, it is no longer sufficient to provide only access to content. To aid research, it is especially important to leverage the potential of text and data mining technologies to improve the process of how research is being done.

This workshop aims to bring together people from different backgrounds who:
(a) are interested in analysing and mining databases of scientific publications
(b) develop systems that enable such analysis and mining of scientific databases (especially those who run databases of publications)
(c) who develop novel technologies that improve the way research is being done.

2. TOPICS

The topics of the workshop will be organised around the following themes:

1. The whole ecosystem of infrastructures including repositories, aggregators, text-and data-mining facilities, impact monitoring tools, datasets, services and APIs that enable analysis of large volumes of scientific publications.
2. Semantic enrichment of scientific publications by means of text and data mining, crowdsourcing or other methods.
3. Analysis of large databases of scientific publications to identify research trends, high impact, cross-fertilisation between disciplines, research excellence etc.

Topics of interest relevant to theme 1 include but are not limited to:

- Infrastructures including repositories, aggregators, text-and data-mining facilities, impact monitoring tools, datasets, services and APIs for accessing scientific publications and/or research data.

Topics of interest relevant to theme 2 include but are not limited to:

- Novel information extraction and text-mining approaches to semantic enrichment of publications.
- Automatic categorization and clustering of scientific publications.
- New methods and models for connecting and interlinking scientific publications.
- Models for semantically representing and annotating publications.
- Semantically enriching/annotating publications by crowdsourcing.

Topics of interest relevant to theme 3 include but are not limited to:

- New methods, models and innovative approaches for measuring impact of publications.
- New methods for measuring performance of researchers.
- Evaluating impact of research groups.
- Methods for identifying research trends and cross-fertilization between research disciplines.
- Application and case studies of mining from scientific databases and publications.
- Improving the infrastructure of repositories to support the development and integration of new impact and performance metrics.

3. SPECIAL OPEN PUBLICATIONS DATASET TRACK

We would like to invite the workshop participants to makes use of the CORE publications dataset containing large volume of research publications from a wide variety of research areas. The dataset contains not only full-texts, but also an enriched version of publications' metadata. This dataset provides a framework for developing and testing methods and tools addressing the workshop topics. The use of this dataset is not mandatory, however it is encouraged.

The dataset is available through the CORE portal:
http://core.ac.uk/intro/data_dumps

4. EXPECTED AUDIENCE

The workshop on Mining Scientific Publications aims to bring together researchers, digital library developers and practitioners from government and industry to address the current challenges in the domain of mining scientific publications.

5. SUBMISSION FORMAT

We invite submissions related to the workshop's topics. Long papers should not exceed 8 pages and short papers should not exceed 4 pages of the ACM style. Furthermore, we welcome demo presentations of systems or methods. A demonstration submission should consist of a maximum two-page description of the system, method or tool to be demonstrated. All submissions will be uploaded to EasyChair for a peer-review.

Papers should be submitted using the EasyChair system provided here:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wosp2016

Successful submissions will be published in the D-Lib Magazine (http://www.dlib.org).

6. IMPORTANT DATES
