Welcome to SciA11y!

This is an experimental prototype created by Semantic Scholar. It provides access to 1.5M open access scientific documents in accessible HTML format. Our system uses machine learning techniques to extract the semantic content of scientific papers and formats it in HTML for easier reading. Because of our reliance on statistical machine learning techniques, some errors are inevitable. We will continue to improve upon our models and would love to hear your feedback in the meantime. The papers included in this demo come from a static dataset; all papers have CC (non-ND) licenses and were published in or before April 2020. More about this prototype...
