Hi all,

Here's something fun for a data scientist or a savvy developer

We are in the process of developing a web application for researchers and we need a large list of unique research tags to start with. We will continue to add more over time obviously.

In scientific journals within google scholar there are unique research tags or descriptions usually in blue text. I am looking for someone that can provide a huge list of these tags by web scrapping.

There are probably many ways that this data can be obtained. Web site or database. A few suggested sites are below
1) google scholar
2) elsiver ( sci journal publisher)
3) open source journals (Plos etc)

I'm not concerned how you get the tags as long as they originate from a scientific journal source and there are hundreds if not thousands of individual tags relating to research.
