An R-Tool for Comprehensive Science Mapping Analysis

Tool for quantitative research in scientometrics and bibliometrics. It provides various routines for importing bibliographic data from SCOPUS (< http://scopus.com>) and Clarivate Analytics Web of Science (< http://www.webofknowledge.com/>) databases, performing bibliometric analysis and building data matrices for co-citation, coupling, scientific collaboration and co-word analysis.
