About SubSift

SubSift is an innovative "submission sifting" application to support academic peer review. SubSift matches submitted conference or journal papers to potential peer reviewers based on their similarity to published works of prospective reviewers in online bibliographic databases, such as Google Scholar. SubSift is implemented as a collection of web services designed to support not only peer review but also personalised data discovery and mashups in tools like Yahoo! Pipes. SubSift's web services are hosted on this site as a research community resource, but the software itself is also open source and available for download from Google Code.

SubSift was developed by the Intelligent Systems Laboratory at the University of Bristol. The work was partly funded by the UK Joint Information Services Council (JISC) in the Rapid Innovation strand of the Information Environment Programme 2009-11.
