Visualize Geographical Bias between PubMed Results

Created: 2015-09-10 15:12:01      Last updated: 2015-09-10 15:28:16

This workflow analyzes the scientific output, as documented by PubMed, geographically. The workflow takes as input the PubMed data in XML and the ISO 3166-1 and ISO 3166-3 country lists. The XML files can contain any subset from two specific PubMed searches. for example for two different journals in the same field.

The XPath components extract author affiliations, and feed these to a series of Beanshell components that match these with countries in the ISO standard. This data is then fed to an Rshell using the rworldmap R package to map the relative affiliation counts on a world map.
