Summary: The goal of this project was to built citation analysis tools for Blake Romero’s thesis project. The thesis is proof of intellectual paradigms in anthropology could be mapped in a citation network. The tools needed were some means of generating and visualizing the citation network as well as tools that scaled the scope of the project from small scale proof of concept to the scale of the entire written body of anthropological literature. This was done with Gephi as the primary visualization, with some plug-in development for the analysis and scope scaling tools.
