Article meta data

In order for TrendMD to generate the initial recommendations for articles, we need to gather key article meta data (information about the article). This allows our algorithm to generate the initial sets recommendations.

Key article meta data includes:
  • *Article title
  • *Article URL
  • *Abstract
  • Author names (when available)
  • Publication date (when available)
  • Journal

TrendMD relies on crawling to acquire article meta data when a publisher is first onboarded. Once the widget is installed, it automatically picks up meta data from any newly published articles.

* this information is required for the widget to provide recommendations
