Google Scholar: Great at NLP-driven Rapid, Global Indexing; Awful at LOD, Author Engagement, and User-facing Metadata

Just saying, Anurag. Y’all could use some help from librarians who specialize in LOD metadata, academic/library UX, InfoDesign, and InfoLit.

Google Scholar is a barren wasteland in terms of meaningful author- and user-engagement and information literacy. No ORCIDs. No displayed DOIs. No bibtex. Just incomplete and difficult-to-edit metadata and unpredictable link resolution.

My retort:

Because it’s completely legal and ethical, as well as pretty f*** cool, to hack one’s own Google Scholar account to stage a Linked Open Data protest.
