Use Web of Science’s New Visualizations To Analyze Your Search Results

To make it easier for all users to understand trends within a large data set, Web of Science now complements its existing Analyze Results feature with a new interactive visualization. The default visualization will represent the top ten results of the first field as either a treemap or a bar graph. Users may modify the visualization by changing the field to be analyzed, the visualization type, or number of results to be shown (up to the top 25).

Remember to click on Update Graph after changing the type or number of results to see your selections reflected in the visualization. Those users interested in sharing the analysis can download the visualization as an image to include it in a report.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Web of Science, it consists of three databases containing information within in all areas of research. It can be used for topic searches, to find out how many times an article has been cited and much more. Contact the library for more information.
