  • You can now visualize your data. To create a network, click on "Graph."
  • Choose a "Source" by clicking on it. For example, "topic."
  • Choose a "Target" by clicking on it. For example, "last_name." This will show you which authors identified by their last names worked on which topics.
  • Check "size nodes" and "highlight" to make the visualization a bit more readable.
  • You should now see a network visualization. What can you read from it?
