Research metrics, closely related to statistics and network analysis, benefit greatly from visualizations. This chapter, written by Helene Draux, introduces some guidelines for visualizations before describing the visualizations frequently used.
Helene introduces Chart Chooser and then considers the characteristics of the data. This includes either static or interactive graphs that are common in statistics, which she complements with advanced graphs more able to represent the links between scholarly objects. These flow diagrams are the opportunity to get an overview of the problem and dig deeper in it.
