Abstract: This project is on social navigation system, which involves investigation of the visual metaphors for social navigation in the digital space of scientific literature.In our case, social information is in the form of number of citations to a paper, year of publication, number of downloads, reputation of the research lab and the authors. Our project aims at using different information visualisation techniques to visually model social information and assist users to locate the resourses easily.
