Citation Context Surfer

A tool aimed at giving users a in-depth look at citations and their surrounding context. Using customizable rulesets new trends can be found and explored.

Synonymic Search

Perform OCR topic and text analysis using a visual interface. Documents for analysis are sourced from the Érudit database.

Érudit Collaboration Maps

Mapping the transfer of knowledge in the Érudit corpus. Allows for filtering by co-authorship in journals or by the institution, date, author or paper title.
