Literature Mapping in 30 Minutes
Literature mapping is a way of discovering scholarly articles by exploring connections between publications. Similar articles can be linked by citations, authors, funders, keywords, and other metadata. These connections can be explored manually in a database such as Scopus or by the use of free browser-based tools such as Connected Papers, Citation Gecko, and Open Knowledge Maps.
In this session, we will talk about how to use literature mapping to hack into the scholarly conversation on the topic you are exploring and how to produce visual graphs of connected literature using free online tools.
