When searching for scientific publications, users today often rely on search engines such as Whereas searching for publications whose titles are known is considered to be an easy task, users who are looking for important publications in research fields they are unfamiliar with face greater diffiulties since few or no indications of a publication’s importance to the respective fields are given. In this paper we investigate the application of the theory of scale-free networks to derive importance indicators for a collection of publications. A tool was developed to support the user in his publication search by visualizing the publications’ importance indicators derived from the number of citations received and the publication’s age as well as visualizing part of the citation network structure. A preliminary user study indicates the utility of our approach and warrants further research in that direction.
