Citation Map

PROJECT BRIEF

The citation Map is designed to visualize the spread of scientific ideas through space and time (i.e., How publications are cited by researchers in different countries over the years ). Mapping such geographic distributions can help discover the patterns of citations which may not be detected by simply looking at the numbers. The Citation Map has a lot of potential applications. It can help researchers discover possible collaborators on the other side of the globe or remind academics of similar work being conducted in their own backyard.
