Open Knowledge Maps – Map a research topic

Open Knowledge Maps is a visual search engine that assists the discovery of scientific knowledge. This makes Open Knowledge Maps a useful tool for evidence-based knowledge management (KM).

The visualization is intended to give you a head start on your scholarly search. You can identify relevant areas at a glance and documents related to them.

Open Knowledge Maps is a charitable non-profit organization based on the principles of open science. The aim is to create an inclusive, sustainable and equitable infrastructure that can be used by anyone.
