Dear colleague,

We published a new version of the CRExplorer (www.crexplorer.net<http://www.crexplorer.net>). CRExplorer uses data from Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics) or Scopus (Elsevier) as input. CRExplorer can be applied for three main objectives: (1) the detection of the knowledge basis (i.e. the origins and historical roots) of research topics, (2) the investigation of influential works published more recently, and (3) the disambiguation of cited references data.

We recommend to use the CRExplorer for the disambiguation of cited references data, before they are used in programs such as VOSvierwer (e.g. for bibliographic coupling) or CitNetExplorer. Web of Science and especially Scopus data are concerned by variants of the same cited reference which distort the results of bibliometric analyses.

CRExplorer version 1.7.7 was released on June 30, 2017. This version includes the following new features and improvements:
*     Publications: Users can specify (under "File" - "Settings" - "Import/Export") if CRExplorer should include publications that do not have any cited references.
*    Settings: Several enhancements in the settings incl. chart layout options (font size, stroke size).
