Academic Analytics
Academic Analytics helps build strong research institutions. University presidents, provosts, and other academic leaders make critical decisions about which research opportunities to pursue and how to win them; which collaborations and partnerships to forge; how best to allocate resources; and how to gauge progress towards the university’s research mission. Academic Analytics helps these senior academic leaders make better and more efficient decisions to sustain and grow their research enterprise. We aggregate, curate, visualize, and contextualize data on the research created by scholars and we provide powerful, user friendly business intelligence tools to visualize and identify patterns from those data. Our tools give institutional leaders a new understanding of the research accomplishments of scholars, departments, programs, and the entire institution – and they point to directions in which to grow the research footprint strategically and in line with the university’s mission. We help senior administrators view research activity in an appropriate context for the issues being addressed, identify new funding opportunities, form expert teams to win funding, and increase the visibility of the institution’s research enterprise to companies, foundations, and potential collaborators.
From Crunchbase: Academic Analytics has $44.4M in revenue annually.

Academic Room
Academic Room is the first multidisciplinary knowledge platform where academia and industry can build open communities to organize academic content within well-defined practice areas—ranging from philosophy, history and economics to engineering, architecture and medicine. The platform also dramatically reduces time to locate, both, credible scholarship and experts within a field of research. Academic Room was a finalist in 2012 Massachusetts Innovation and Technology Exchange (MITX) Awards and 2013 EdTech Digest Awards Program for its ability to harness and broker resources and talent across its open communities. Academic Room is headquartered in the Harvard Innovation Lab. Academic Room is currently being used by some of the leading institutions in the world. For instance, Columbia University's Center for Development Economics and Policy (CDEP) uses Academic Room to curate working papers, journal articles and multimedia content for its global audience of thought leaders. CDEP also runs a multi-author blog on development economics on Academic Room. Similarly, faculty from Harvard University use Academic Room to engage with industry and announce new projects.

ASAPbio is a scientist-driven non-profit promoting transparency and innovation in life science communication.
In 2015, ASAPbio founder Ron Vale published an analysis of the increasing time to first-author publication among graduate students at UCSF, and proposed a more widespread use of preprints in the life sciences as a potential solution. He recruited three fellow members of Rescuing Biomedical Research (Daniel Colon-Ramos, Harold Varmus, and Jessica Polka) to organize a meeting on the topic. Held at the headquarters of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in early 2016, the meeting concluded with broad consensus among attendees (among them researchers, funders, and representatives from journals and publishers) that preprints could productively contribute to the research ecosystem. As follow up from the meeting, ASAPbio began serving as a dedicated organization to coordinate efforts promoting the adoption of preprints in the life sciences. ASAPbio subsequently received grant funding, incorporated as a nonprofit, and, in 2017, initiated a second area of programming focusing on increasing transparency in peer review.

Axios Review
Axios Review is a service to which ecologists and evolutionary biologists submit their mss. They get back peer reviews, just like with a journal, along with an editorial decision as to which journals (from an author-supplied list of “targets”) the editor would recommend the ms to (following appropriate revision, if needed). Axios then forwards the ms, reviews, and recommendation to the target journal, asking them if they’d like the paper to be revised and submitted. The service costs authors a small fee ($250 USD), currently payable only after a journal accepts the ms (this will be switching to payment upon receiving the Axios decision in mid-2015).

Cabells gives academics and scholars tools to make smart decisions in journal evaluation. Exploring journal quality, transparency and the peer-review process.
As a young professor of Management in 1978, Dr. David W. E. Cabell sought an easier way for tenure committees, professors, researchers and doctoral students to find academic journal information in order to publish their research. Dr. “Dave” originally created his idea for a journal directory as a class project and was encouraged by professors to pursue it further. The original printed list included only one discipline and basic contact information for each journal. Since its founding almost 40 years ago, Cabells has expanded its services to include both a journal whitelist and blacklist, manuscript preparation tools, and a suite of powerful metrics to help its users find the right journals, no matter what stage of their career. The searchable whitelist database includes 18 academic disciplines from more than thirteen thousand international scholarly publications. Through our continued partnerships with major academic publishers, journal editors, scholarly societies, accreditation agencies, and other independent databases including Thomson Reuters’ Journal Citation Reports ®, Cabells provides accurate, up-to-date information about academic journals to more than 750 universities worldwide—with one goal in mind…

Case is a medical journal app for physicians and researchers with a recommendation engine powered by a machine learning algorithm. It has both Android and iOS versions. Case makes it easy to read medical journal articles on your phone, and subscribe to a specialty or set of jouranls. Case currently supports 81 medical specialties. The cool thing about Case is that it also lets you follow any of more than 100,000 keywords. For example, if you’re an oncologist, you don’t necessarily need to follow all cancer journals. Maybe you want to follow AML cancer. Or a protein, gene, or pathway related to AML. With Case you can do that. But the even cooler part is that Case works kind of like Netflix, and surfaces journal articles based on what you enjoyed reading in the past. Its algorithm, based on Google Tensorflow, combines your behavior with external factors such as journal impact factor, number of views, shares, and likes, and time spent reading to learn what you like to read. It boasts a 20-minute average session time on desktop (5 minutes on mobile).

After nearly 15 years operating CiteULike, we’ve made the difficult decision to close the site. Unfortunately, the costs associated with providing it and the fact that none of us really has any time to put into the maintenance and development of the site mean that we have to call it a day. We know there are still a number of you out there who use the site regularly and we’re sure you’ll be disappointed but hope you’ll understand. You will be able to download your library until 30th March 2019 but after that it is likely that CiteULike will no longer be accessible. We will be refunding any Gold subscriptions pro rata that extend beyond that date. We wish you all success in your research and happiness in your life. The CiteULike team.

Mission is “to maintain a unified map of human understanding at its best, in real time,” Claimspace invites anyone to contribute to threads of knowledge on any topic using basic lines of code to create a logical line of reasoning, based on (and linking to) fully attributed and peer-reviewed facts and studies. In its openness and inclusiveness of authorship it may more closely resemble Wikipedia than a journal, but it is unique in its simple presentation of knowledge as a logical progression of verified facts, eschewing the narrative/discussion aspect all together. Not to suggest that a detailed discussion of findings is not often critical to understanding; but one might imagine such a “logic map” as a layer on top of a more detailed article (whatever form that may take), allowing readers to easily explore a field and the individual findings and assumptions upon which it is structured.
