γνῶθι σεαυτόν (know thyself)

Citation reports and lab presentations are the daily bread of a scientist. To make life a little less painful, I wrote an R markdown script that pulls my bibliographic data from the ORCID and Crossref databases, and creates a word cloud and two tabular reports. The R markdown script runs in RStudio. For my ORCID identifier ('0000-0001-6732-1958') the word cloud presented in the blog article graphics is produced. This image is exported to a png file. The citation summary, based on Crossref data, gives realistic data (a bit lower than Google Scholar, and similar to ISI Web of Knowledge analyses):

These tables are saved in CSV format and can be easily imported into spreadsheet programs (e.g. LibreOffice or Microsoft EXCEL) for producing charts. The R markdown script can be downloaded from GitHub.

As you may notice, the supervisor of my PhD and PostDoc time still occupies the first place of co-authors, which demonstrates that my time in the Hertweck lab was really productive. The following ranks are very successful M.Sc. and PhD students that worked in my lab, as well as my best internal and external collaborators. Listing the publications with internal co-authors demonstrates the vital role of my lab for the institution. Besides, this list helps me to spot productive collaborators for fund proposals and future research projects. You always should bet on the fastest horse and the winning team!

Word cloud and bibliographic analyses are based on your global output. However, they might reflect, how other researchers might perceive your work. But you also can modify the R script and search by intervals. For example, to compare the most frequent article title words during your PhD time and after getting an independent position as a group leader.

Observing the development of your research focus during your academic life can be an extraordinary experience; give it a try!
