General info

This section lists some basic information about the researcher such as Name, URL, Organization (that the researcher has been determined to be affiliated with most recently) and an optional description (About). Note that the organization, like the affiliation history, is determined from the affiliation of the researcher's papers and may not always be accurate.

hIndex

Displays the four different h-Index metrics that we have calculated for the researcher. The algorithms used for h-Index calculation are from the paper Generalized h-index for Disclosing Latent Facts in Citation Networks

Affiliation history

A list of organizations that the researcher has been affiliated with, ordered by time of affiliation (latest first). Note: These are taken from the affiliation string of the researcher for each of his papers. It may not be always accurate.

Pagerank

A graph showing the researcher's pagerank over time. It shows three different pagerank metrics - Authors citation, Papers citation and Coauthorship.

  • Authors citation
    • indicated by a blue line
    • based on citation graph
  • Papers citation
    • indicated by a green line
    • represents the sum of pagerank of all the papers that the researcher has published
  • Coauthorship
    • indicated by a red line
    • based on the coauthorship graph

The value plotted on the y-axis is the percentile bracket (essentially the percentile rounded up). Note: the same graph can be seen on a full page by clicking on the pagerank tab.

Pie

A piechart with multiple rings that provides several statistics for the researcher.

  • Coauthorship ring (blue)
    • Indicates with which researchers has this researcher collaborated the most.
    • Each wedge represents a coauthor and the number of papers written that the researcher has written with that coauthor
  • Conference ring (green)
    • Indicates in which conferences has the researcher published the most.
    • Each wedge represents a conference and the number of papers that this researcher has published in that conference
  • Years ring (orange)
    • Indicated in which years has the researcher been most active
    • Each wedge represents a year and the number of papers that the researcher has published during that year
  • Page rank of papers (brown)
    • Indicates what pagerank the researcher's papers have
    • Each wedge represents a pagerank bracket and how many of the researcher's papers fall into that bracket during the latest year (2008 currently)

Keywords

A tag cloud showing the keywords that have been used by this researcher as well as their relative frequency (font size) and absolute frequency (number in parenthesis; shows how many papers the researcher has written using the particular keyword)

The weight for each keyword is calculated using the following formula:

weight = (log(count)-log(min))/(log(max)-log(min));

count is the number of times that the researcher has used the keyword

min and max are the counts for the least and most frequently used of all keywords that the researcher has used

The font size for each keyword is determined by this formula:

textSize = MIN_SIZE + (MAX_SIZE-MIN_SIZE)*weight;

MIN_SIZE and MAX_SIZE are the sizes of the smallest and largest keywords in the tag cloud

weight is the weight calculated above

Papers

This shows all of the papers written by the researcher in a sortable table.

The following information about each paper is shown:

  • Title - the title of the paper
  • Authors - the researchers that have worked on the paper, with links to their pages (the current researcher's name is in bold)
  • Organization - the organization that the current researcher has been affiliated with when they wrote the paper
    • Not available for all papers and may not always be accurate
  • Year - the year during which the paper was published
  • Venue - the venue that the paper appears in
  • Pagerank - the pagerank bracket that the paper falls in during the latest year (2008 currently)
  • Cited by - total number of other papers citing this paper

The table can be sorted by each column by clicking on the icon next to the column heading.

Citations To

A list of papers that this researcher has cited. It is using the same table as the papers listing except that it does not list organization.

Citations By

A list of papers that have cited papers written by this researcher. It is using the same table as the papers listing except that it does not list organization.

GIS

A geographical visualization of the researcher's affiliation history. Each pin represents an organization that the researcher has been affiliated with at some point in time (i.e. has published papers while being in that organization)
