Abstract

Although textual interfaces for browsing scientific pa- pers have several drawbacks, they are still the most used in digital libraries. Several visual approaches have been proposed in recent years in order to provide the user with a deeper insight of the search context and to allow him/her to quickly gather a collection of documents judged as useful for his/her research. This paper presents CyBiS, a novel 3D analytical interface for a Bibliographic Visualization Tool with the objective of improving scientific paper search. The design choices are justified on the basis of previous experi- ences described in literature and its effectiveness is shown through the description of an example session.
