LAK dataset | Society for Learning Analytics Research - computational analyses on the Learning Analytics research literature | Analyse This | Scoop.it
"In collaboration with strategic partners, SoLAR is making it possible to perform computational analyses on the Learning Analytics research literature. We are making publicly available machine-readable versions of research sources for scientometrics and other methodologies.

This site provides access to structured metadata from key research publications in the field. This advances SoLAR’s mission, as it provides not only more comprehensive search facilities to discover relevant work in the growing corpus, but also enables researchers to analyse the field — for instance, to track the evolution of a topic over time, or to identify correlations with related communities."
