Research output: Conference materialsPoster


With the fast growing amount of scientific literature, browsing through it can be a difficult task: formulating a precise query may be problematic as new research areas emerge quickly and di?erent terms are often used to describe the same concept. To tackle some of these issues, we built a system for exploratory scientific search based on topic models. An initial short user study shows that through visualizing the relationship between keyphrases, documents and authors, the system allows the user to better explore the document search space compared to traditional systems based solely on search query. © 2017 ACM.
