The Third Advanced Workshop on Scientific Knowledge Mapping and Scientometrics Methods and Applications Successfully Held

Advanced lecture on scientific knowledge mapping and scientometric methods and applications jointly sponsored by the Network-Information-Science-Econometrics Laboratory (WISE LAB) of Dalian University of Technology and the Professional Committee of Scientific Theory and Discipline Construction of the Chinese Society for Science and Science and Technology Policy


The Advanced Workshop on Scientific Knowledge Mapping and Scientometrics Methods and Applications (Phase III) jointly sponsored by the Network-Information-Science-Econometrics Laboratory (WISE LAB) of Dalian University of Technology and the Professional Committee of Scientific Theory and Discipline Construction of the Chinese Society for Science and Science and Technology Policy was successfully held in Dalian University of Technology from August 25 to August 27, 2013.

Dr. Chen Chaomei, the inventor of the CiteSpace, an authoritative expert in information visualization, and the "Yangtze River Scholar" chair professor of Dalian University of Technology, and Professor Liu Zeyuan, a theoretical scholar of science in my country and an advocate of scientific knowledge mapping, and other senior experts gave lectures during the workshop. The students had face-to-face communication.

Dr. Chen Chaomei showed the exquisite visual maps accumulated in scientific research, introduced the basic principles and usage skills of CiteSpace through case analysis, and shared the latest research progress of the CiteSpace, especially the double image superposition technology, which showed more abundant and in-depth information, presented more dazzling visual effects, and brought the scientific knowledge map to a new height.

Professor Liu Ze-yuan made a thematic report on the origin of science of knowledge map, and analyzed some problems of the leading CiteSpace knowledge map in the contemporary world from the perspective of science. Other teachers in WISE Laboratory of Dalian University of Technology combined their own research to teach the theoretical methods of scientific knowledge mapping and visualization technology. Among them, Mr. Ding Kun elaborated on the data processing and visualization of Chinese database. Teacher Chen Yue specifically demonstrated the operation and application of CiteSpace. Teacher Hou Haiyan introduced the application of CiteSpace in literature review writing. Teacher Wang Xianwen demonstrated the literature analysis tool Bibexcel and the social network analysis tool Ucinet. Teacher Jiang Chunlin introduced the database selection and evaluation index of scientific evaluation, mr. Lin Deming introduced the analysis method and application of scientific knowledge network in combination with complex network theory, and Mr. Yang Zhongkai taught the application of information visualization method in patent measurement.

In order to improve the quality of everyone's learning, this workshop pays special attention to practicality. In addition to the case demonstration by senior experts in the course of the lecture, it also increases the link of case discussion. Hu Zhigang, a doctoral student in WISE laboratory, shared his experience. At the same time, many students showed their CiteSpace works on the spot. Professor Chen Chaomei had face-to-face communication with the lecturers and answered questions in a relaxed atmosphere.

After three days of study, the students said that the combination of case and theory, and the combination of teaching and operation have benefited everyone a lot. The careful teaching of senior experts has deeply realized the unique charm of knowledge map, which is of great benefit to the learning of knowledge map and visualization technology, and the practical operation ability has also been greatly improved. Thank you very much for the academic exchange platform provided by the organizers of this workshop.
