What Is Literature Mapping?

Literature mapping is a way of discovering scholarly articles by exploring connections between publications using citation information and other metadata. These connections can be explored manually in databases such as Web of Science, Google Scholar and PubMed and through free browser-based tools such as Connected Papers, LitMaps, and Open Knowledge Maps that create graphical representations of linked literature.  In this session participants will learn the principles of literature mapping, how to start a literature map manually, and be introduced to free browser-based literature mapping tools.
