Use Litmaps to create interactive literature maps: collections of articles that make up your different research topics. Create maps for your research by searching our literature database; linking your reference manager; or through automatic generation from seed articles.
Citation network algorithms are an excellent way to supplement keyword searches, helping to surface key articles that may have otherwise gone unseen.
Ensure citation traversal algorithms are targeting your areas of interest by specifying keyword and date range filters.
Litmaps will automatically present suggested articles based on their connectivity to your maps, helping to accelerate your literature gathering process.
Literature maps, when combined with Litmaps’ note-taking tools, act as a core body of knowledge for research organisations.
“Litmaps was refreshingly showing us things that we hadn’t found, things that flew under the radar, which was good… and a little scary.”
Neal Outland, Assistant Professor

More than 200 million records, updated daily with the most recent high-quality publications.
Opt in to receive automated email alerts when emergent literature is found to be highly connected to your maps.
Notes taken in Litmaps can be tied directly to articles, minimising the need to switch back and forth between different pieces of software.
Export maps for use as conference slides, or embed them in websites. All levels of expertise in your organisation can engage with research projects using Litmaps’ visualisations.
Upload and connect your internal documents to your literature maps, allowing your team to see how upcoming or private work relates to wider research.
