The project and web service Scholia displays information from Wikidata. As the core functionality, it shows scientific bibliographic information: list of publications of specific authors, venues, organization, etc. Bar charts of number of citations, graphs of co-authors. It makes extensive use of the Wikidata Query Service. It attempts to make a complete researcher profile/CV as well as a tool to help researchers navigate the scientific literature.
Scholia runs from https://tools.wmflabs.org/scholia/ and is developed in an open source fashion from https://github.com/fnielsen/scholia.Slides or further information:
