As expected, a larger number of bursts appear, and the new bursts have a smaller weight that those depicted in the first graph. These smaller, more numerous bursting terms permit a more detailed view of the dataset and allow the identification of trends. The "protein" burst starting in 2003, for example, indicates the year in which Alessandro Vespignani started to work with "protein-protein interaction networks," while the burst "epidem" - also from 2001 - is related to the application of complex networks to the analysis of epidemic phenomena in biological networks.

The original dataset for Alessandro Vespignani was created in 2006. If you wish to update the dataset to gain an understanding for how his research has changed and evolved since 2006 you can obtain a new dataset from the from Web of Science, see ISI Web of Science. However, another way to obtain an individual researcher's publication information is to use their Google Scholar profile, if they have one. One of the biggest benefits to using a Google Scholar profile is that you will get publications not indexed in Web of Science, such as some book chapters. In this example, we will obtain the publication information for Alessandro Vespignani using Google Scholar:
