SoftwareKG_Social and SoftwareKG_PubMed

SoftwareKG_Social and SoftwareKG_PubMed and are two projects by the University of Rostock and GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences that document software mentions in scientific papers.
These two knowledge graphs (KG) enable users to inspect and query and consequently understand the role of software in science. SoftwareKG_Social is our primer from 2019 on a dataset of 51,000 articles from the social sciences, while SoftwareKG_PubMed, from 2021, comprises a much more sophisticated analysis on a larger dataset of more than 3M PubMed Central articles. Both KGs use a very similar data model and originated from extraction methods that were iteratively improved.
