Action Science Explorer (Formerly iOpener Workbench)

Action Science Explorer (Formerly iOpener Workbench)
Latest News January 2012. Our paper on Action Science Explorer was accepted by JASIST, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. See the Publications section below for more details. December 2011. Action Science Explorer was featured in a NSF Discoveries report, "A New Visualization Method Makes Research More Organized and Efficient" (pdf). July 2010. Description The goal of the iOpener project is to generate readily-consumable surveys of different scientific domains and topics, targeted to different audiences and levels. Action Science Explorer is partially an integration of two powerful existing tools the SocialAction network analysis tool and the JabRef reference manager. These tools are linked together to form multiple coordinated views of the data. There are other coordinated views that provide the user with other aspects of the field.

Network Visualization Immersion by the MIT Media Lab is a view into your inbox that shows who you interact with via email over the years. Immersion is an invitation to dive into the history of your email life in a platform that offers you the safety of knowing that you can always delete your data.Just like a cubist painting, Immersion presents users with a number of different perspectives of their email data. It provides a tool for self-reflection at a time where the zeitgeist is one of self-promotion.

CiteSpace: visualizing patterns and trends in scientific literature CiteSpace is a freely available Java application for visualizing and analyzing trends and patterns in scientific literature. It is designed as a tool for progressive knowledge domain visualization (Chen, 2004). It focuses on finding critical points in the development of a field or a domain, especially intellectual turning points and pivotal points. Publish or Perish - Anne-Wil Harzing Are you applying for tenure, promotion or a new job? Do you want to include evidence of the impact of your research? Is your work cited in journals which are not ISI listed? Then you might want to try Publish or Perish, designed to help individual academics to present their case for research impact to its best advantage.

CiteSpace: Visualizing Patterns and Trends in Scientific Literature Requirements Java Runtime (JRE) You need to have Java Runtime (JRE) installed on your computer before you can run CiteSpace. Make sure you install the JRE that matches to your system. Websites as graphs Everyday, we look at dozens of websites. The structure of these websites is defined in HTML, the lingua franca for publishing information on the web. Your browser's job is to render the HTML according to the specs (most of the time, at least). You can look at the code behind any website by selecting the "View source" tab somewhere in your browser's menu. HTML consists of so-called tags, like the A tag for links, IMG tag for images and so on. Projects - *ORA Overview | People | Sponsors | Publications | Hardware Requirements | Software | Training & Sample Data *ORA is a dynamic meta-network assessment and analysis tool developed by CASOS at Carnegie Mellon. It contains hundreds of social network, dynamic network metrics, trail metrics, procedures for grouping nodes, identifying local patterns, comparing and contrasting networks, groups, and individuals from a dynamic meta-network perspective.

Comparison of reference management software The following tables compare reference management software. General[edit] In the "notes" section, there is a difference between: how to make both work for you So yesterday I posted about how I switched over to JabRef reference software, mainly because it allows relative links, but also because it easily lets you see and edit the BibTex entry, which as a LaTeX user, is very helpful. There are two things JabRef does not really do that Zotero does that I find really useful: 1) Zotero can easily capture reference information from a variety of website formats, even if no Bibtex or RIS entry is provided 2) You can drop a pdf directly into Zotero, index it, and then retrieve the reference information automatically, assuming the article is online somewhere

designing responsive objects & spaces The Internet is actually not a single network, but a collection of networks all owned by different network service providers and linked using some common protocols. The arrangement of physical connections on a network depends on how you want to route the messages on that network. The simplest way is to make a physical connection from from each object in the network to every other object. That way, messages cab=n get sent directly from one point to another. The problem with this approach is the number of connections gets large very fast, and the connections get tangled. A simplier alternative to this is to put a central controller in the middle and pass all messages through this hub as in the star model..

InFlow Social Network Analysis Software for Business, Communities and Government Software for Social Network Analysis & Organizational Network Analysis If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is an interactive model of your organization, community, or industry worth? InFlow 3.1 performs network analysis AND network visualization in one integrated product -- no passing files back and forth between different programs like other tools. What is mapped in one window is measured in the other window -- what you see, is what you measure. InFlow excels at what-if analysis -- change the network, get new metrics -- just 2 clicks of the mouse. InFlow is designed to work with Microsoft Office and the WWW.
