Open Journal Matcher gets further funding

I just found out that I was awarded a PSC-CUNY Research Grant to fund the Open Journal Matcher! The grant will pay the bills for the OJM for a while, and will also allow me to develop it further. Previously, the project had been funded by Google.

I have two specific goals for this grant. The first is improving the OJM code. My goal is to move most of the text processing out of Google Cloud Functions. Instead, my hope is that I can pre-process much of it, and do the remaining bits in my Flask application. If it works out, this will greatly reduce the computing power needed to run the project, and ultimately reduce the cost.

The second goal is to finish a paper I am writing about this project. Basically, I need to buckle down and write.
