Earlier this year, the UBC Library Research Commons was the successful recipient of the Library innovation grant, to create a research network visualization prototype. The Research Commons partnered with the UBC Future Waters Research Excellence Cluster to find a workflow that would create graphical representations of the cluster’s publication information using pre-existing records in Wikidata and other open source tools. The library’s work on this project has made it possible for other research groups to make use of the same model to visualize their own work by providing a free, open-source, downloadable version of the workflow.
