A lecture by Dr. Alberto Accomazzi, the Principal Investigator and Program Manager for the NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS).
The NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) is the primary Digital Library portal for researchers in Astronomy and Astrophysics. It is also used extensively by the broader community of Space Science Researchers. In addition to the scientific literature, the ADS has for a long time included in its database non-traditional scholarly resources such as research proposals, software packages, and high-level data products, making them discoverable and easily citable. The ADS platform features a number of advanced capabilities such as full-text search, advanced queries using its citation graph, and scalable computation of metrics on any search result. The user interface integrates a number of additional visualizations such as co-author and co-citation networks, providing views of research groups and research topics. In this talk I will highlight some of the advanced features of the system and its distinguishing features.
