Abstract: Pigwidgeon is a database and Python web app designed to streamline the process of monitoring scientific publications using an observatories data, by regularly collating potentially matching publications from the Astronomy Data Service (ADS) and presenting an easy-to-use interface for classifying these publications. Custom classification categories can be added to a given search, and multiple separate searches can be set up in a single instance of the software. It is currently used by the JCMT/East Asian Observatory. Pigwidgeon uses SQLalchemy, Flask and the ADS Python interface.
