Data Preparation > Database > ISI > Extract Document Source Bibliographic Coupling Network


Extracts the journal bibliographic coupling network from an ISI database.

The output network will include the following summaries of your dataset:

Usage Hints

Load an ISI file into the tool, then create a database from it using the ISI database loader.

It is strongly recommended that journal information in the database be cleaned before extracting the journal bibliographic coupling network. You will probably want to merge together journal entities according to recognized variants.

The specific query run by the tool can be found in the source code.
