Research COVID-19 with AVOBMAT

To foster research into COVID-19 virus, we make the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset created by the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence available in a simplified, beta version of the AVOBMAT (Analysis and Visualization of Bibliographic Metadata and Texts) research tool. The database consists of more than 51000 articles which can be text mined and analysed with the AVOBMAT toolkit. We hope that we can help researchers explore this database in new ways and support the fight against the new coronavirus. When a new version of the COVID-19 database is released, we shall upload it to the platform.  

AVOBMAT was primarily designed for digital humanities research. Libraries and research databases at scale can be integrated into AVOBMAT. In the COVID-19 version of AVOBMAT the upload, different preprocessing functions and lexical diversity analysis are not available. We planned to release AVOBMAT in the second half of 2020. It has not been tested by the public. Please note that AVOBMAT is hosted on a virtual machine with basic parameters. 

Before first using AVOBMAT, you might want to have a look at our “Help” page to get familiarized with the main functions of the toolkit.
