|Accuracy of Models for Mapping the Medical Sciences
This project aims to provide a highly accurate interactive map of medical research that can be easily used by both technical and non-technical users. Most current science maps in use today are small in scale and have not been validated. Accurate decisions require high quality and high coverage data, well defined and tested data analysis workflows, and a resulting representation that matches the visual perception and cognitive processing capabilities of human users.
Phase I of this project compares and determines the relative accuracies of maps of medical research based on commonly used text-based and citation-based similarity measures at a scale of over two million documents.
The following people, although not part of the formal team, will also contribute to the project.
