Why use Pro for your research?
Pro gives access to features that are unavailable in the free version of Litmaps. These features are designed to help personalise and optimise how you find and use papers for your research. It lets you:
Customise your search for papers, so you can drill down on the right papers faster
Discover recommended authors in your field (new feature!)
If you’ve enjoyed the free version of Litmaps so far, consider trying Pro to get even more out of it, and to help support the tool.
New Feature: Co-Author Search
Identifying the leading researchers in a field traditionally involves spending hours sifting through papers and author lists, especially when you’re unfamiliar with the literature. With Co-Author Search, you’ll discover them instantly.
Just released last week, Co-Author Search looks through your papers and the broader network of literature to find the top-ranked authors in the field. These authors will automatically show up on your literature map of recommended articles, with connections to the relevant papers they’ve authored.
