As my Blogposts in the last few months suggest, my Bachelor thesis handles the development of a web application that is able to visualize research networks from scientific publications. Now, I need your help in evaluating the meaningfulness of the graphs and diagrams that are generated with my application (GEXFVizz).
The survey can be found here and is separated into four small parts. In the first part you will see a „Co-Authorship“ graph of the ECTEL conference of the years 2006 to 2011. So, every node correspond to a scientist. Within this graph two nodes are connected, if the authors have at least one common publication. You can use this link to open the graph.
In the second part of the survey you will see a „Bibliographic Coupling“ graph of the ECTEL conference of the years 2006 to 2011. This graph connects two nodes (publications), if they have a common citation. The coupling strength of two given documents is higher the more citations they have in common. You can use this link to open the graph.
The third part of this survey will handle visualizations that has been created with Circos.
The Circos visualization that you can find here shows the top 40 co-authorships of the ECTEL from 2006 to 2011. You can use this example pdf to help you answering the questions of the survey.
The last part of the survey contains some questions taken from the INTUI questionnaire.
All in all, I would really appreciate your help by participating in this survey.
