This is a contribution to the #FlashForwardFest 2021 session Visualizing the global research ecosystem via Wikidata and Scholia on 24 February 2021. A recording of the session is available via https://youtu.be/Rk_XdMCk3fA .
Research takes place in a sociotechnical ecosystem that connects researchers with the objects of study and the natural and cultural worlds around them.
Wikidata is a community-curated open knowledge base in which concepts covered in any Wikipedia — and beyond — can be described and annotated collaboratively.
This session is devoted to demoing Scholia, an open-source tool to visualize the global research ecosystem based on information in Wikidata about research fields, researchers, institutions, funders, databases, locations, publications, methodologies and related concepts.
