”Algorithmic classification of research publications in Pubmed – methods and application”.

Classifications of research publications can be created using community detection in citation networks. Such classifications can be used to analyze different aspects of the science system, for example to monitor the publication output of an university or the evolution of a research field. Classifications can also be used to improve search systems, for example by displaying search results as maps of research fields. I will show a classification of about 8 million Pubmed articles into research fields at different levels (broad to narrow) and discuss methods and possible use of the classification for researchers.

What are the Health Informatics Conversations?

HI Conversations - a seminar series about Health Informatics

The conversations are about research-oriented health informatics topics, i.e. – presenting a published article, your research area, a relevant theory or a method etc.  

The Health Informatics Conversations will be recurring the last Thursday (except for June and December) every month at 12.00 via Zoom and last for one hour. This hour includes 20 minutes of presentation and leaves the rest of the time for discussions, all in English.

If you are a PhD-student – this is a credit-bearing activity, as long as the topic is relevant for your research.
