SciTo Trends: Visualising Scientific Topic Trends

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 11799)


Monitoring trends in scientific disciplines is a common task for researchers and other professionals in the broad research and academic community, like research and innovation policy makers and research fund managers. We demonstrate SciTo, a powerful tool that assists in the monitoring of trends in scientific disciplines. SciTo supports keyword-based search for the identification of scientific topics of interest and comparison of interesting topics to each other in terms of their popularity inside the academic community.
