Understanding Duke Research Based on Large-Scale Faculty Publication Records


John Benhart (CompSci, Math) and Esko Brummel (Masters in Bioethics and Science Policy) spent ten weeks analyzing current and potential scholarly collaborations within the community of Duke faculty. They worked closely with the leadership of the Scholars@Duke database.

Project Results: The team built an interactive similarity network of Duke scholars, with weighted edges derived from textual analysis of publication titles.They also created visualizations of co-authors and co-investigators, which give the user the ability to “zoom in” and understand the collaborative ecosystem around specific Duke scholars.
