About the event
This talk will introduce you to social network analysis in the context of metadata of scholarly publications. Based on bibliographic information from the Web of Science, we will explore co-authorship and co-occurrence networks as a tool to demonstrates one’s position in the landscape of the peer-reviewed literature. The talk will demonstrate how rich network data can be used to showcase collaborations and indicate one’s standing in the scholarly community in a more accurate and complete way than simple indicators such as the h-index or the number of citations.
