English abstract:
Since no development or invention just appears out of nowhere, the search for former and related work is an important part of the whole research process. During this part of the research by nding, ltering and connecting the knowledge found in publications of other researchers insight in a research area is acquired. This insight, if represented and stored in an appropriate way, can be seen as new generated knowledge and could be reused by other researchers as well. This work therefore proposes a system of interlinked nodes, in which nodes, attributes, links and groupings can be shared over a peer-to-peer network. This allows researchers to store and share their publications, as well as the knowledge they have gained during their research by attributing, linking and grouping the publications useful to other researchers in a similar area. LinkVis, the system I propose, uses methods from the eld of visualization and peer-to-peer networking to provide a platform, which is not only capable of visualizing and sharing this research knowledge, but also any other data, which can be modeled as a network of interlinked nodes.
