Finding relevant information on the Internet is often challenging. This problem is even more severe for researchers and scientists as their work depends on reliable and scientifically proven data. Therefore, platforms like Google Scholar, Web of Science, and Scopus have been introduced with the purpose of providing a widely ranged and always up-to-date collection of scientific publications. The latter two also offer the functionality of citation analysis for a more in-depth quality assessment of publications.
Since there are numerous websites and research platforms offering different sets of functionalities, multiple sources have to be considered in order to assess the quality of a publication adequately or to find related work.
This thesis develops a concept for a new bibliometric platform, which combines a basic search engine with adequate bibliometric analyses and visualizations.
Following, the needs of the user group are incorporated into the planning process. Therefore, usability methods are applied to identify preferences and dislikes as well as the current workflow of the user group. Based on the identified requirements, a user interface prototype for a bibliometric platform is created.
