        Subject: COVID-19 database in a new text mining DH tool & related NLP meet-up

Dear All,

To foster research into the new coronavirus, we made the COVID-19 Open
Research Dataset
ca. 51000 articles) available in a simplified, beta version of the AVOBMAT
(Analysis and Visualization of Bibliographic Metadata and Texts) text
mining tool. You can access it via the following link:


Please share it with research and medical communities who are involved in
the fight against the pandemic.

In the COVID-19 version of AVOBMAT the upload, different preprocessing
functions and lexical diversity analysis are not accessible. We planned to
release AVOBMAT in the second half of 2020. Please note that AVOBMAT is
hosted on a virtual machine with basic parameters on our university library

The AVOBMAT-COVID19 platform will be briefly introduced at an NLP meet-up
on Monday after the talk of the AI researchers of the Allen Institute for
Artificial Intelligence (https://allenai.org/) who created the COVID-19
Open Research Dataset (CORD-19).


During the meeting "we discuss the curation of CORD-19 and promising
avenues of research conducted over the corpus. We hope this resource will
bring together the computing community, clinical experts, and policy makers
in the search for effective treatments and management policies for

Please feel free to join the meeting and pass the information to anyone

Kind regards,
