JournalMap is an ecological literature search engine that directly links published research to a geographic location and biophysical variables of the area where that research was conducted. It works as a traditional keyword literature search engine with a map location feature. All publications entered into the JournalMap database are geotagged based upon the location information provided in the publication and plotted on a global map. JournalMap allows you to visualize where the research was conducted and allows you to search for literature from areas of similar geographic and biophysical features. Go to the JournalMap website at www.journalmap.org.
Presentations about JournalMap by Jason Karl
- GPS for Research Discovery: Map-based literature search for researchers, guiding them to your publications - Maps are a powerful way to tell stories and have long been a crucial part of scientific publishing. They inform us about things and show relationships better than words alone can. JournalMap extends this idea by plotting on a map where research was done – it’s like GPS for research discovery. JournalMap is a free and open web-based search platform for finding scientific literature. Articles are mapped to their locations, filters and keywords can be used to narrow results.
- Leveraging the Where in Scholarly Literature: Enabling geographic-based knowledge discovery - How focusing more on the “where” of scholarly research can help us better find and use the “what” that’s in those sources.
