Mr. DLib is a non-profit open-source project to provide recommendations for research articles, call for papers and academic news as-a-service. Mr. DLib was originally developed as a Machine-readable Digital Library at the University of California, Berkeley and is nowadays run by researchers, among others, from the Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), the ADAPT Centre, and the University of Konstanz (Germany). Mr. DLib has a corpus of around 9.5 million documents from the pilot partner GESIS, which runs the academic search engine Sowiport. In addition, we are currently working on adding the 20 millions documents from the CORE project and integrating Mr. DLib in JabRef. Mr. DLib is also gratefully using readership data from Mendeley to improve literature recommendations.
