Last week, CWTS colleagues Nees Jan van Eck and Ludo Waltman published a post in which they announced the launch of VOSviewer Online. Today, they discuss a new update of the regular stand-alone VOSviewer tool, offering additional possibilities for making VOSviewer visualizations available online.
CWTS prepares for a new phase in its organization. In our new strategy, we aim to put our values first. A value-based strategy is the cornerstone of a well-functioning, positive research culture. Through open dialogue sessions we started to further shape this culture.

VOSviewer is a well-known and widely used software tool visualising quantitative data. Learning to use all VOSviewer’s features through guided instruction was an exceptional and new experience for us. In this post, we share some of our recent experiences in mastering our science mapping skills.
