Welcome to refnet - Bibliometric Tools for R project!

This is the refnet package for the R statistical computing environment. Our goal is to provide a package of tools for bibliometric analyses. This package and its tools are currently designed to read, analyze and visualize Thomson-Reuters Web of Knowledge/Science, ISI and SCOPUS format reference data files. Social network analyses, geocoding of addresses and spatial visualization are supported.

refnet sample output for publications from the UF Geography Department, 2010-2013

We consider this work currently pre-alpha, however, as we progress we will continue to release source code and updates via R-Forge. If you would like more information, help or have comments regarding the code and package development please don't hesitate to email or contact us.
