“As a new user, I am beginning with very little knowledge of the analyses and modelling techniques that Sci2 enables. My interest in Sci2 was generated by the published images of the Map of Science and the Places and Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit. From a motivational perspective, the rich images and visuals provided the initial interest or 'hook'. As I've begun to work with the application, I'm finding that the workflows are the next most valuable aspect of the Sci2 site/application. I've been able to use my own dataset and follow through some of the workflows to the point of generating the first network and time horizon visuals. That was so exciting I stayed up far past bedtime to get to the visuals.”
“Sci2 is a remarkable new network visualization tool that allows for easy data import from standard comma-separated lists and generates network analytics as well as visualizations. Although I had no previous experience using social network mapping tools, within a day of downloading Sci2 I was creating multiple outputs and data visualizations from complex data sets. Hats off to Katy Börner and her colleagues at Indiana University for developing this valuable new resource.”
