new preprint: "Wikidata as a FAIR knowledge graph for the life sciences"

Entity diagram of life sciences data in Wikidata.
I do not want to make it a habit to send out blog messages about preprints (you see them on your BiGCaT website) and wait with blogging until the article is formally published, but since I have mentioning this preprint to so many people know, it's likely worth checking out.

I'm happy to have been able to contribute to this story by Andrew Su's team and the many other people involved, as I do think Wikidata is a game changer. Our work lies in the corner of small compounds in Wikidata, as you will have been able to see from various presentations at conferences.

Some further posts about what I have been doing in Wikidata, related to this preprint:

Or just generally search for Wikidata in my blog, because there is a lot more to check up on.

Google Scholar has become a channel of spam

Apparently, some culprits have found a way to escape the otherwise impressive spam detection by Google, and managed to spam Google Scholar:

Now, Google Scholar has a long history of learning with a serious paper looks like, and I'm sure they will learn to recognize this kind of spam too. If not, it will be the end of Google Scholar, I'm afraid.
