Rexplore leverages novel solutions in data mining, semantic technologies and visual analytics, and provides an innovative environment for exploring and making sense of scholarly data. Rexplore allows users: (1) to detect and make sense of important trends in research; (2) to identify a variety of interesting relations between researchers, beyond the standard co-authorship relations provided by most other systems; (3) to perform fine-grained expert search with respect to detailed multi-dimensional parameters; (4) to detect and characterize the dynamics of interesting communities of researchers, identified on the basis of shared research interests and scientific trajectories; (5) to analyse research performance at different levels of abstraction, including individual researchers, organizations, countries, and research communities.
