What Can I Do With HistCite?

HistCite has many applications. Here are some of them:

Identify the key literature in a research field
By analyzing the results of a keyword search you can identify:

  • papers important to the development of the topic

  • important papers “missed” by your keyword search

  • most prolific and most cited authors and journals

  • other keywords that can be used to expand the collection

Analyze publication productivity and citation rates within a collection of research papers
Compare characteristics such as:

  • countries and institutions that authors publish from

  • most prolific and most cited authors within the groups

  • citation statistics for groups and subgroups (mean and median citation rates of papers, number of authors per paper, etc.)

Reconstruct the history and development of a research field
Analyze the content of an author search and you can find:

  • highly cited articles

  • important co-author relationships

  • earlier publications and documents important to the development of the author’s work

  • time line of the authors’ publications

  • view historiographs showing the key papers and timeline of a research field.
