Open Knowledge Maps: A visual Interface to the Worlds Scientific Knowledge

Open Knowledge Maps Open knowledge mapsA Knowledge Map presents you with a topical overview for your search query based on the 100 most relevant documents matching your query. The visualization is intended to give you a head start on your scholarly search. You can identify relevant areas at a glance and documents related to them.

Benefits of using Knowledge Maps

Get an overview of a research topic: knowledge maps provide an instant overview of a topic by showing the main areas at a glance, and papers related to each area. This makes it possible to easily identify useful, pertinent information.

Separate the wheat from the chaff: we cluster similar papers together. This makes it easier to identify relevant content when you are searching for an ambiguous term, or when you would like to identify content from a single discipline in a multidisciplinary field.

Identify relevant concepts: one of the most difficult tasks when you are new in a research field is to learn the “language” of the field. Open Knowledge Maps makes it easier for you by labeling research areas with relevant concepts.

Find open content: our knowledge maps include both closed and open access papers. However we highlight open access papers – and the majority of those papers can be read from within the interface. And if not, the fulltext is only a click away.
