Visualization Analysis of Subject, Region, Author, and Citation on Crop Growth Model by CiteSpace II Software
A detailed visual analysis of publications related to crop growth model development and trend was carried out based on the latest version of information visualization and analysis software CiteSpace II. A total of 6,079 publication data between 1995 and 2011 were collected from Thomson ISI’s SCI (Web of science in the Science Citation Index Expanded Edition). After analysis by CiteSpace, the most productive countries related to Crop Growth Model, as well as institutes, key scholars, co-citation patterns, etc., were visualized and identified from 1995 to 2011.
