Abstract: For readers of scientific publications it remains a big challenge to unambiguously relate the published research with the data used. To a substantial degree it is attributed to authors, journals, editors, and reviewers not prioritizing correct data citation, which impacts traceability, repeatability, and giving credits to published authors and their funding sources. Furthermore, uniform classification of the content of the published research is hampered by journals using journal specific topics and letting authors to assign free text keywords to their papers. We demonstrate automated analytics methods for extracting and relating datasets used and the research application areas by processing 1,300 research papers that referenced the NASA Giovanni service (but probably not the datasets in particular) as supporting their publication process. This presentation was given during the 2022 ESIP January meeting held virtually in January 2022.
