Literature mapping is a method for discovering and exploring connections among scholarly peer-reviewed articles on your research topic. It uses graphical methods to plot relationships among published scholarship (e.g., links via citations, authors, keywords, other descriptors). Literature mapping can help researchers see patterns that otherwise might not be evident. In this introductory workshop, Life Sciences Librarian Dan Kipnis, will present various literature mapping techniques and online tools (i.e. Elicit, Semantic Scholar, and Litmaps) to help researchers discover scholarly literature beyond using traditional databases.
