I just realized that the co-citation analysis is a very handy tool, especially at the initial stage of the research. There are many software available that do the co-citation and bibliographic analysis for you. However, most of them require the output file from scientific search engines like Scopus, Web of Science, and so on.
What I would like to do is to run a co-citation analysis on a collection of scientific papers that I have (gathered in a folder), to see how the citation network looks like and find the most important papers. I am currently using Vosviewer but it appears that it does not allow such analysis.
I have exported the .ris file from Mendeley and then read it in Vosviewer but then it only shows the co-authorship and co-occurrence of keywords, which are not interesting for me.
Any suggestion will be appreciated.
