Help in digesting science on deadline

Joseph Lichterman writes about Science Surveyor, a new service from Columbia and Stanford researchers who want to give reporters the context of new academic papers: "Science Surveyor is still being developed, but broadly the idea is that the tool takes the text of an academic paper and searches academic databases for other studies using similar terms. The algorithm will surface relevant articles and show how scientific thinking has changed through its use of language."
