I am doing research in the field of bibliometrics and scientometrics. My research focuses primarily on the development of visualization tools and algorithms, mainly for analyzing the structure and development of science. I am the main developer of VOSviewer and CitNetExplorer, two well-known software tools for visualizing bibliometric data. The VOSviewer software is frequently used in bibliometric studies. More than 700 publications have appeared in international scientific journals in which the software is employed. In addition to my work on bibliometric visualization, I also focus on the study of bibliometric data sources and the analysis of the full text of scientific publications. In most of my research I am working closely together with Ludo Waltman.
