Thank you so much for sharing! When researching a paper I always try to find papers that cited or were cited by so this will be a real short-cut!

It's like the research version of ancestry.com.

I was hoping it would be something that tracks down citations too, because I have been looking for one of those for years. It actually searches and arranges the graph according to paper “similarity”, a metric based on how much the citations and references match. So it’s good for finding similar or related work but it’s not a citation tree.

Either way, a nicely designed tool and I’m glad to have discovered it.

Visual component is amazing. As a visual person I always find it difficult to focus on text-only researches

Looks similar to Roam https://roamresearch.com/

If it means having things connected and having research in the name then yeah, but Roam is a tool for writing while this appears to be more of an infographic source to see how published papers are related

Have you thought of presenting thematic mapping via title/abstract term or keyword co-ocurrence?

Perfect timing — writing a paper right now. No more looking up references manually, like some kind of savage.

Does anyone know a software that does this but in 3d?

Something that would enable the user to look at a similar grid from all angles?

This is a subreddit based around sharing awesome, usually minimal and single-purpose websites and webtools. Also, note to self: If this subreddit gets huge, awesome, if it does not, I will simply use it to back up my bookmarks! << top kek Sure, I'm dissapointed you guys removed my post, I was keen to hear what people on the Internet thought of it. But it mainly saddens me to see beauty constrained by such tyranny
