(Click if graph isn´t visible! iPhone/iPad users, sorry but this interactive Microsoft Graph doesn´t work on your platforms.)

On the Co-author Graph each node represents an author, and a bigger node means the author has more publications. The more papers two authors write together, the closer their nodes are positioned. The graph also contains other information such as paper count and basic information of each author, number of co-written papers between two authors, etc..

hi, i'm working on the project "academic search". And i saw there is a typo error in your code that embeds our social network graph: "scale = 0,8" should be "scale = 0.8". could you update the code so that it will work? thanks and glad to see your feedback about our site. :)

Thank you for your comment. I've updated the code and installed the Silverlight plug-in for Safari on my iMAC but it seams not to work yet.

The "scale=0.8" change didn´t work at all, so I changed back to 0,8. Now it works in Windows again.
