Orion is an open source platform to measure progress in research and organise scientific knowledge.

Orion has three distinct components:

You can combine these components to develop an application (see Use Cases) or use Orion's data pipeline for science of science projects.

You can find Orion on GitHub.


  • Dynamic: Reconfigure Orion's data pipeline to collect and analyse the scientific documents of your choice.
  • Modular: Add or remove Orion's data pipeline before running it.
  • Flexible: Make scientific knowledge explorable with variable length text queries and interactive data visualisations.
