                                OVERVIEW
                             This presentation describes the Literature Map application, which uses Web 2.0 concepts in the preparation of
                             literature reviews for medical research. The application displays bibliographic references in a graphical manner.
                             Publications are presented in order of publication, with citation links connecting interrelated publications. Different
                             degrees of detail for each publication can be presented, thus allowing for different depths of understanding about
                             the covered topic. Students are therefore able to quickly move from a general overview of the topic to specific
                             comments on portions of the text for each scientific article.
