Influence flower visualises citation influences among academic entities, including papers, authors, institutions, and research topics.
- Blue arcs denote incoming influence, with their thickness proportional to the number of references made.
- Red arcs denote outgoing influence, with their thickness proportional to the number of citations received.
Influence statistics are computed from Microsoft Academic Graph (MAG) dataset. MAG is the data source behind Microsoft Academic Search, indexing data about scientific publication records, citation relationships, as well as authors, institutions, journals, conferences, and fields of study. The current influencemap is based on a MAG graph snapshot from 2021-02-15, which will be regularly updated.
Computing influence scores
We compute influence as a function of paper citations.Each of the edges of the graph signifies the flow of influence to and from the center node, the strength of this relation is reflected in the thickness of the edge.
- The red edges denote the influence the center has towards the outer entities, i.e., an outer entity citing a paper by the center. The blue edges denote the influence the outer entities have towards the center, i.e., the center cites a paper by an outer entity.
- The color of the outer nodes denotes the difference between incoming and outgoing influence scores. A blue node indicates that the associated entity has influenced the center more than the center has influenced itself. Likewise, a red node indicates the center has influenced the node's entity more than it has influenced the center.
