A General Index of Science

14 Jan 2023

A little over a year ago Cory Doctorow echoed out to a larger audience a report by Nature on Carl Malamud’s development of “a full-text-searchable index of 100,000,000 scientific articles.” The catalog contains 355 billion words, and returns five-word snippets and citations in response to queries. It’s publicly available for all to mine and search.

The index itself is at The Internet Archive.

You can go back to the logbook or dive into the archive. Choose your own adventure!
