The Curtin Open Knowledge Initiative (COKI)
Open access data has a wealth of benefits: it reduces economic barriers and start-up costs, generates economic value and innovation, and improves efficiency and accessibility. The purpose of COKI is to use big data and cloud computing to amass trusted analysis and high-quality knowledge into the world’s leading dataset of research publications. COKI developed a suite of open knowledge analysis and enabling tools for use on its massive data warehouse. These tools allow for the tracking and use of the 12 trillion items in the dataset.
