Publication Clouds

February 27, 2010

Previously researchr supported ‘tag cloud’ views for bibliographies providing a quick overview of the important and lesser important topics in a set of publications collected in a bibliography. Similarly, an ‘author cloud’ gives an overview of the authors of a bibliograpy, emphasizing authors with many papers.

Now clouds are not just provided for tags and authors, but also for year, publication type, and publication venue. Furthermore, cloud views are provided for all ‘publication lists’ in researchr: author profile, alias page (publications authored by author with same name), bibliography, tag, and also for the publications of the editions of a conference. The latter provides a nice overview of the community and topics of a conference series.
