Open Knowledge Maps has recently reached a major milestone – over 1 million maps have been created on the platform.

This 1 million knowledge map mark demonstrates the flourishing interest in innovative ways of discovering scientific knowledge. Each of the knowledge maps created is a unique search produced by individuals part of the community, spanning over 200 countries and territories worldwide. 

Open Knowledge Maps is the world’s largest visual search engine for research, operated by an Austrian nonprofit organisation of the same name. On our platform users can create knowledge maps of research topics in any discipline. These visual overviews show the main areas in a field and contain relevant papers and concepts.

Open Knowledge Maps and its open infrastructure are part of the European Open Science Cloud. We follow the system-of-systems approach, whereby the services offered on our platform can easily be integrated in 3rd party systems. One example of this approach is the Horizon 2020 project TRIPLE, wherein we are co-developing GoTriple, a European discovery platform for the social sciences and humanities. Furthermore, we are an extraordinary partner of the Austrian EOSC Mandated Organisation and EOSC Support Office Austria. Being a coordinator of the GO FAIR Implementation Network “Discovery”, we facilitate the improvement of research data discovery.

We are grateful to our community who continuously collaborate with us in our mission of empowering the world with knowledge one map at a time. We encourage you to help us in this endeavor, and share your creations on Open Knowledge Maps with peers!
