Abstract

Duke is one of the leading sites for research across the nation, throughout the world where professionals are defining the way to a better and healthier future. A thorough understanding of how Duke networks behave is crucial to their efficient operation. By visualizing data on networks, it is possible to greatly improve our knowledge of how Duke researchers collaborate and detect patterns that would not be evident in a database alone. Our focus is on mapping collaboration networks. Clusters of nodes in the maps show both the research communities that coalesce from different departments or affiliations and the relationship among those communities. The maps also show the collaborations that have not been made, which indicate opportunities for future research. The goal of this visualization was to examine the geographic spread of collaborations represented in the scholars@duke dataset. The goal of the Scholars@Duke Visualization Challenge was to create visualizations that capture the richness and dynamism of Duke research. The datasets were provided by Scholars@Duke (https://schoalrs.duke.edu/) and they describe publications, authorships, and scholarly collaborations from university researchers over the past 5 years.
