Others science mapping software tools

Science mapping analysis can be carried out with different software tools. There are some general software tools that can be employed in this task but whose goal is not science mapping analysis, such as Pajek, UCINET, Gephi, Cytoscape, or Publish or Perish. On the other hand, there are a variety of software tools specifically developed to perform a science mapping analysis.

In the following, we link to others science mapping software tools. A complete description and a deep comparative study showing their advantages, drawbacks and most important differences can be found in: M.J. Cobo, A.G. López-Herrera, E. Herrera-Viedma, F. Herrera, Science Mapping Software Tools: Review, Analysis and Cooperative Study among Tools.
