 +====== Bibviz for Bibliography Visualisation ======
 + 
 +Bibviz is an automatic tool that enables to visualise co-authorship relations in a bibliography file. Starting from a bibliography file in BibTex format, the tool transforms it into a graph, where nodes represent authors and links the co-authorship relations.
  
 +What you need is simply a clean installation of some python tools:
 +  * [[http://​pypi.python.org/​pypi/​biblio-py/​0.5.7 | biblio-py]]
 +  * [[http://​networkx.lanl.gov/​ | networkx]]
 +  * [[http://​matplotlib.org | matplotlib]]
 +  * and my source code available on [[https://​github.com/​samerlahoud/​biblio-viz | GitHub]]!
 +
 +You can see in Figure 1 a dynamic view of my bibliography file. Node size represents connectivity and link colour represents the number of co-authorships (scaling from light blue to red). Figure 2 represents another sample output processed by [[http://​gephi.org/​ | Gephi]].
