Nodal network of literature citations

Using an annual-oriented approach towards organizing literature citations is too linear! We propose use social network analysis software to link the relations between new research articles and existing citations. For example, analogous to social networks, each author might list the top three citation that influence their work and have these citations connected to provide a new way of visualizing and categorizing research threads.
