Figure 5.7: Funding profile over time of Michael McRobbie
The horizontal bar graph visualizations in Figures 5.5, 5.6, and 5.7 make it easy to see the timespan of different researchers, as well as the types and volume of grants they generally receive (e.g., many small grants or a handful of large ones). From here, it may be useful to compare their Co-PI networks and look more closely at award totals. Select each dataset in the Data Manager window and run 'Data Preparation > Extract Co-Occurrence Network' using these parameters (note that the Aggregation Function File is located in 'yoursci2directory/sampledata/scientometrics/properties/' folder:
Run 'Visualization > Networks > GUESS' on each generated network to visualize the resulting Co-PI relationships. Select 'GEM' from the layout menu to organize the nodes and edges.
