Plazi and BLR receive €1.1 million from Arcadia Fund to open up new biodiversity data

(Pensoft Publishers) Plazi is to utilize a grant from Arcadia Fund to expand the existing corpus of the Biodiversity Literature Repository — a joint venture of Plazi and Pensoft, hosted on Zenodo at CERN. By adding thousands of figures and taxonomic treatments extracted from publications, the project's aim is to further develop high-tech tools to facilitate machine access to the content, thereby paving the way for its new innovative uses in line with open science.
