BLIMP is a forum for collecting, compiling and sharing a (hopefully) complete bibliography on biomedical literature mining.
The fast-growing field of biomedical literature mining is
highly-interdisciplinary. Publications appear in forums ranging from the
SIGIR conferences (the ACM Special Interest group on Information Retrieval)
to journals such as Nature and Science, with the whole range of
bioinformatics forums in-between.
To substantially contribute, one must know what was/is being done in this diverse area, and place the work in context - both biologically and computationally.
Instead of starting a journal fully dedicated to biomedical literature mining, thus creating yet another publication venue, this site offers an alternative: It holds in one place a compilation of references to relevant papers that have been published or accepted for publication.BLIMP offers authors: Visibility, exposure, recognition that the paper has impact in the field. Moreover, the Editor's pick for "paper of the month", involves editors from prestigious journals, and can really boost readership of a paper.
Important: Papers must either be accepted for publication by another journal or conference, or be a PhD/MSc dissertation or an official technical report, in order to appear here.
