Litmaps is a literature map software tool that assists researchers in visualizing, expanding, and communicating their expertise in literature research. It enables users to discover academic papers using automated citation searching, allowing them to find relevant articles they might not have known they needed. The tool also offers the ability to visualize search results by creating a Litmap, which displays how articles are linked to each other through citations. Collaborative features allow researchers to share their Litmaps with colleagues and export them to demonstrate their work. Additionally, Litmaps can monitor searches in the background for new articles that may be missed. This AI tool aims to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of literature reviews and research, making it a valuable resource for researchers in various fields.
