Action Science Explorer (Formerly iOpener Workbench)
Latest News January 2012. Our paper on Action Science Explorer was accepted by JASIST, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. December 2011. July 2010. Description The goal of the iOpener project is to generate readily-consumable surveys of different scientific domains and topics, targeted to different audiences and levels. Action Science Explorer is partially an integration of two powerful existing tools the SocialAction network analysis tool and the JabRef reference manager. JabRef supplies all the features one would expect from a reference manager, including searching using simple regular expressions, automatic and manual grouping of papers, DOI and URL links, PDF full text with annotations, abstracts, user generated reviews and text annotations, and many ways of exporting. These tools are linked together to form multiple coordinated views of the data. There are other coordinated views that provide the user with other aspects of the field.
