This interactive visualisation of the REF2014 impact case studies is a key exhibit in the Digital Research Report at http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.1476881.

Each case study is a node in the network. The links between case studies represent the similarity of text describing the background research. You can zoom in to explore clusters of related content. Click on individual case study nodes to reveal case study titles and links to the full text. The menu in the top right corner allows selection of individual REF subject area panels to which the case studies were submitted. Colours indicate which panel they are: A – biomedical sciences is green; B – physical sciences and engineering is red; C – social sciences is blue; D – arts and humanities is yellow. The colours are helpful in identifying interesting cross-over areas. Try clicking on the nodes in the red cluster sited among the yellows: these are case studies on public outreach in science.
