Explore Papers

Once you've selected some papers, you can select one of the Explore Papers options (Earlier Work, Later Work, or Similar Work) and you'll be able to see a graph and additional features. 

  • Understanding the Network Graph:
    • Edges are directional, indicating citation direction.
    • "Earlier Work" is akin to exploring the references of your selected papers.
    • "Later Work" resembles exploring the papers that cite your papers.
    • "Similar Work" involves topic modeling and ranking based on citation information.
    • Not all references are included; algorithm prioritizes closely related works.
  • Additional Details:
    • Node Size:
      • Green nodes larger than blue ones.
      • Size could be influenced by the number of connections.
      • Blue node size depends on connections to green nodes.
    • Node Color Intensity:
      • Darker color indicates more recent items.
    • Selecting a paper reveals details like title, authors, year, citations, and abstract.
    • Add selected papers to your collection if helpful.
    • Exploration process can continue; new graphs adjust with added papers.
