The World Wide Web is moving into a new rhythm by evolving into an unprecedented data resource, offering an open and decentralised environment for the access of a wide range of text, image and other information. Motivated by this exciting movement, ScholarsWeb explores the rich resources of web documents for scientific literature review through an original web-based system. Literature review is a key step in scientific innovation. Currently, this step is still largely reliant on brain activity. Very few tools are available to assist comprehension of the vast number of research documents that we are confronted with nowadays. ScholarWeb can become researchers’ real assets by informing them of a wide variety of relevant documents through machine-empowered search and analysis, taking advantage of the presence of the rich web resources far beyond the memory capacity of humans.
