Elsevier, the world's largest scientific publisher, approached us about building a tool for exploring scientific collaborations The Co-Author Explorer is an interactive node-link diagram of an author's top co-authors (●) and their publications (■).

This application is integrated in Elsevier's Scopus database, and also lives in the sidebar of full text articles on ScienceDirect.

Click on any of the thumbnails to pop up these visualizations in a new window.
