Dr. Joeran Beel - Mr DLib: Related-Article Recommendations for Digital Libraries As A Service
“Mr DLib” is a non-profit open-source project to provide recommendations-as-a-service for research articles, call for papers, and academic news.

Recommendations-as-a-service (RaaS) for operators of academic products
Academic outreach for providers of academic content
A real-world research environment for students and researcher
