PLOS Visualization Project

673

Published on

Presented at the 10th annual Data Harmony Users Group meeting on Tuesday, February 11, 2014 by Kevin Boyack of SciTech Strategies. Shows how a comprehensive map of the scientific literature was used to visualize the PLOS thesaurus. The resulting visualization becomes a new visual template that can be used to 1) examine the thesaurus structure, content, and level of detail; and 2) show coverage and trends for various entities such as journals, institutions, and even individual authors.

  1. 1. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents Visualizing PLoS Data DHUG 2014 February 11, 2014 Kevin Boyack, Bob Kasenchak, Margie Hlava
  2. 2. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 2 AGENDA Background Data Science mapping Mapping thesaurus directly Mapping thesaurus indirectly » SciTech S&T map » Thesaurus map Overlays
  3. 3. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 3 BACKGROUND To answer questions posed by PLoS using PLoS index (thesaurus) terms, a map of the thesaurus space is desirable » Where is the coverage thin, where is it dense? » What areas are core and which are emerging trends? Which fields are growing quickly? » Which fields are interrelated? » Which fields have low activity but are related to very active fields? Some questions require more than PLoS data » How does the coverage in PLoS journals relate to coverage in other databases? A map of the thesaurus space can function as a template upon which various distributions can be overlaid Some questions are more amenable to tables than maps
  4. 4. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 4 DATA Thesaurus » 10,551 unique terms in 15,164 locations » 11 top level terms » 296 second level terms in 305 locations PLoS article data parsed / indexed by Access Innovations » Article level data through mid-2013; 84,989 records » 72,796 records with index (thesaurus) terms; 171,181 terms Scopus data » SciTech Strategies licenses use of Scopus data from Elsevier » 1996-2011; 25M records

  6. 6. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 6 SCIENCE MAPPING A map is a visual representation of the relationships within a » Classification system (e.g., journal categories, taxonomy) » Document corpus Science maps can/have been created using » Documents, Journals, Authors, Terms, Taxonomies 30-40 year tradition of science mapping » Well-established methodologies » Current computing power and data availability enable large scale mapping and analysis Maps used for communication, strategy, planning, evaluation … » Understanding of structure, relative location » Basis for metrics
  7. 7. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 7 GENERAL PROCESS Select data source and objects (e.g., docs) of interest Scopus / WoS PubMed Patents Your own data Calculate similarity between objects (doc-doc) Citations (links) Words (title/abstr) Create a visual layout (map) of the objects / clusters Pajek / Gephi
  8. 8. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 8 MAPPING PLOS TERMS DIRECTLY Mapped second level terms » All terms rolled up to the second level term at the top of the branch Cosine similarity between terms based on co-occurrence in articles Map created using Fruchterman-Reingold mapping routine in Pajek » Based on only the top 3 links per term – strongest linkages Each node (term) colored using top level terms » Biology and life sciences (light green) » Medicine and health sciences (salmon) » Physical sciences (purple) » Research and analysis methods (yellow) » Social sciences (light orange) » …
  9. 9. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 9 MAPPING PLOS TERMS
  10. 10. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 10 MAPPING PLOS TERMS DIRECTLY Resulting map is difficult to use » Using second level terms leaves out needed detail » Term counts span several orders of magnitude – hard to map well » Terms within the same branch of the thesaurus don’t cluster well Resulting map doesn’t account well for context (areas where PLoS has low coverage) Need a map that does a better job of providing context, and that better matches our current picture of science So … we decided to index Scopus data using the PLoS rule-base and map based on that more inclusive context
  11. 11. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 11 MAPPING PLOS TERMS INDIRECTLY Use existing map of all of science Triangulate term positions
  12. 12. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 12 SCITECH S&T MAP 20 million articles (1996-2011) 3 million patents (1996-2011) 220,000 document clusters Cluster contents using citation Cluster positions using text The visual is the final step (last 10%); the full process is needed for robust analysis Template on which other info can be overlaid; documents (and related info) tied to map positions We are the only ones in the world who do contextual analysis at this scale
  13. 13. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 13 TRIANGULATION Use full S&T map as basis Based on Scopus 2007-2011 Locate each thesaurus term as the average position of its documents The resulting map contains 11,934 terms; full coverage; interpretable Terms with multiple colors appear multiple times The term map becomes the basemap
  14. 14. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 14 THESAURUS BASEMAP The term map becomes the basemap Circle size - # documents Circle color – top level term Many small circles – detailed thesaurus and rule base that differentiates Few large circles – broad terms and rule base that doesn’t differentiate Location/size of terms facilitates questions - Is term well located in the thesaurus? - Is the rule base acting as desired? - Should term be broken up?

  53. 53. Physics Chemistry Engineering Biology Disease Medicine Brain Health Social Computer Patents 53 SUMMARY Mapping the PLoS thesaurus directly (using co-occurrence) gave maps that were only partially useful. Indirect mapping of the PLoS thesaurus using a comprehensive map of the scientific literature (based on Scopus data) was very successful. The resulting visualization of the PLoS thesaurus became a stand-alone basemap, a template that can be used to: » Examine the thesaurus structure, content, and level of detail. » Show coverage and trends for various entities such as journals, institutions, authors, etc. This thesaurus mapping effort helped visualize which areas of the PLOS thesaurus were covered well, or not well enough, as well as which fields were emerging or well-established. All overlays based on tabular data, so detailed analysis is possible.
