For our demo, we will use VOSViewer to execute a basic example of CNA based on a search result from Web of Science. This demo follows the steps of an in-class workshop offered by the King Library.
VOSViewer can import data from many sources, including databases and APIs. For the demo, let's look at some sources that are available to SJSU users and easy to use.
For this demo, we will use Web of Science.
Here are some other databases that work well with VOSViewer.
