We present VOSviewer, a computer program that we have developed for constructing and viewing bibliometric maps. VOSviewer combines the VOS mapping technique and an advanced viewer into a single easy-to-use computer program that is freely available to the bibliometric research community. Our aim in this paper is to provide an overview of the functionality of VOSviewer and to elaborate on the technical implementation of specific parts of the program.
