Description

JournalMap is a scientific literature search engine that empowers you to find relevant research based on location and biophysical variables as well as traditional keyword searches.

All publications are geotagged based on reported location information and plotted on a world map showing where the research was conducted allowing you to easily visualize the research occurring in specific areas and show you where data gaps might exist.

In addition to being able to search for literature geographically, JournalMap opens up the possibility to search for literature from similar areas. In many parts of the world, there has been little formal study of the structure and dynamics of local environments. However, research that has been conducted on landscapes that share similar soils and climates can, in many cases, be relevant to these understudied regions.

The boundaries and names shown and the designations used on this map do not imply official endorsement or acceptance by the UNCCD. Read more.
