Short, Strong and Simple Mapping of Research Fields

Abstract [en]

Even within a narrowly defined research speciality, the citations among its papers may form a dense and complex network. In this paper a new mapping approach is suggested and tested on a network of papers on co-citation analysis. One way of mapping the dynamics of the field is to reduce the number of direct citation links by successively minimizing the citation year lag. Another approach is to remove the weakest links from the network. When the two approaches are combined, keeping only short and strong citation links, interesting decompositions of the original citation network was found.
