Visualise Your Key Literature

Get an at-a-glance picture of your research topic.
Build a literature map to see connections between articles over time

Our dynamic visualisation shows the key info you need to make sense of the vast corpus of literature available. Whether you are working on a literature review, academic paper, or breakthrough technology, having an at-a-glance picture of your research topic is essential. So create a map of your key articles and capture what you have read, or need to read.

Adjust the map to your needs. Size nodes by citation count, set a finer time scale, or only show edges on hover.

Create Multiple Maps

Keep your research topics seperate and neatly organised. Combine maps to see the intersection and interactions between different topics.

You can also share a link to a seed article to share with others.
