CiteSpace is a widely used and freely available tool for visually exploring and analyzing trends and patterns in scientific literature. This recent blog post by Chaomei Chen outlines the steps to handle exported data from The Lens to display and analyse it using CiteSpace:
CiteSpace version required: 5.5.R2
This is a brief update on how to handle CSV files exported from lens in CiteSpace 5.5.R2.
The current option is to use the Data>Import/Export>CSV to configure your own conversion and select Keyword as the node type. What you can get now is a network of co-cited references in their Lens' IDs, you can look it up in your browser by right-clicking on the node and selecting the "LENS" option in the pop-up menu. For example, to look up a node with lens ID 026 395 112 558 483, the corresponding webpage will be shown in your browser window: https://www.lens.org/lens/scholar/article/026-395-112-558-483/main. In the example below, the most cited reference turns out to be an article by Eugene Garfield.
