Action Science Explorer
Tools for Rapid Understanding of Scientific Literature


The goal of iOpener (Information Organization for PENning Expositions on Research) is to generate readily-consumable surveys of different scientific domains and topics, targeted to different audiences and levels.


We’ve created an infrastructure for automatic summarization of research domains that links bibliometric lexical link mining, summarization techniques, and visualization tools.


Part of this is the Action Science Explorer, a new tool which presents the academic literature for a field using many different modalities: lists of articles, their full texts, automatic text summaries, and visualizations of the structure of the citation network.
