Network analysis of publications on studies of Parkinson Disease
More than 10 million people worldwide are suffering from Parkinson Disease (PD). We analyse publications on studies of PD over the period from 2015 to 2021. We have collected about 70 thousand papers from 4912 different journals. After the data preprocessing 39811 publications and 3292 journals are left.
Methods of centrality analysis have been applied to identify the most significant publications and journals in the field. Classical and new centrality indices have been evaluated for the whole period and for each year. It can be noticed that changing the parameters makes it possible to extract groups of specialized journals and fields of study, which intensively cite each other.
