Navigating the Scientific Literature Made Easy with Litmaps: A Helpful Review - 2023

Litmaps is an incredibly useful plugin that assists in navigating the vast world of scientific literature. With this plugin, you can easily find relevant papers and generate mindmaps of the literature to enhance your research process.

To begin using Litmaps, simply start by asking the plugin to perform a keyword search on a specific topic. For example, you can say, "Find articles on climate change." The plugin will then provide you with a list of relevant scientific articles to explore.

Once you've found an article that catches your interest, you can further delve into it by asking the plugin to fetch more details. To do this, you'll need to provide the article's ID, which the plugin will have given you in the previous step.

If you want to gain a better understanding of how the chosen article fits into the broader scientific literature, you can ask the plugin to create a seed map. A seed map is a visual representation of the article's citation network, allowing you to view the connections between various papers. Again, you'll need to provide the article's ID to proceed.

To view the generated seed map, simply follow the link provided by the plugin to the Litmaps website. Once there, you can explore the map and discover which articles have cited the one you're interested in, as well as the articles it has cited in turn. Additionally, you can uncover related articles that may be of significance.

After exploring the seed map and gaining new insights, you can easily return to the plugin and continue your literature search. Whether you need to fetch more articles or create new seed maps, the plugin is here to assist you at every step.
