Citation mapping

We didn't get to demonstrate this very well today but I think citation mapping is a tool that could be useful and is certainly an interesting way to visualize the way that an individual paper fits into the larger scheme of things. Check out the online demo that shows some of the key attributes quite nicely. The only problem is that it currently doesn't seem to work quite as rapidly as their demo version. Still, it is just the beta version. Web of Science/Knowledge is changing quite rapidly these days and you can always click on 'what's new' on the right hand side of the homepage to see what the latest updates are.
