Plotting historical co-citation network

Description

histPlot plots a historical co-citation network.

Usage

histPlot(
  histResults,
  n = 20,
  size = 5,
  labelsize = 5,
  title_as_label = FALSE,
  verbose = TRUE
)

Arguments

histResults

is an object of class "list" containing the following components:

NetMatrix the historical citation network matrix
Degree the min degree of the network
histData the set of n most cited references
M the bibliographic data frame

is a network matrix obtained by the function histNetwork.

n

is integer. It defines the number of vertices to plot.

size

is an integer. It defines the point size of the vertices. Default value is 5.

labelsize

is an integer. It indicates the label size in the plot. Default is labelsize=5

title_as_label

is a logical. If TRUE document titles are plotted instead of short labels.

verbose

is logical. If TRUE, results and plots are printed on screen.

The function histPlot can plot a historical co-citation network previously created by histNetwork.

Value

It is list containing: a network object of the class igraph and a plot object of the class ggraph.
