Eigenfactor.org is a non-commercial academic research project sponsored by the Bergstrom lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. Eigenfactor uses the structure of the entire network to evaluate the importance of each journal. A set of 4 interactive visualizations based on the Eigenfactor Metrics and hierarchical clustering were produced in order to explore emerging patterns in citation networks.

With the same data, Eienfactor visualizes it in 4 different ways successfully. It does not seem that this visualization can be customized but if can, this would be very useful to visualize the complicated relationship among data.

  1. Terrific find. The Citation Patterns is especially well-executed, and its use of the hierarchical edge bundling technique is very instructive.
