Recent availability of data about writing processes at keystroke-granularity has enabled research on the evolution of document writing. A natural task is to develop systems that can actually show this data, that is, user interfaces that transform the data of the process of writing --today a black box-- into intelligible forms. On this line, we propose a data structure that captures a document's fine-grained history and an organic visualization that serves as an interface to it. We evaluate a… Expand
Exploring, browsing and interacting with multi-scale structures of knowledge
This article introduces an endogenous way to visualize the outcomes of the phylomemy reconstruction process by combining both synchronic and diachronic approaches and aims to translate high-dimensional phylomemetic networks into graphical projections and interactive visualizations. Expand
Using Multimodal and Hyperlinked Representations of Knowledge as Academic Writing Aids
This study analyzes how hypermedia structures can facilitate students' critical reflection on their papers by using multimodal resources and designed a hypermedia system that enables the visualization and representation of students' papers using text, images, audio, hyperlinks, and videos. Expand
Adoption of Bring-Your-Own-Device Examinations and Data Analytics
This chapter considers how digital examinations can open up the black box of student work by enabling data analysis not just at the end of an assessment but also during the process of producing it. Expand
Bio-inspired Structure Identification in Language Embeddings
It is shown that the bio-inspired model can be used to investigate how different word embedding techniques result in different semantic outputs, which can emphasize or obscure particular interpretations in textual data. Expand


DocuViz: Visualizing Collaborative Writing
A new tool is offered, DocuViz, that displays the entire revision history of Google Docs, showing more than the one-step-at-a-time view now shown in revision history and tracking changes in Word. Expand
Studying Writers’ Revising Patterns with S-Notation Analysis
This chapter describes a computer-based technique for analysing revision and text production strategies, called S-notation, where a representation is created of all revisions made to a text during a writing session, including their order and internal structure. Expand
Organic information design
This thesis introduces a visualization process titled Organic Information Design that employs simulated organic properties in an interactive, visually refined environment to glean qualitative facts from large bodies of quantitative data generated by dynamic information sources. Expand
Online Writing Data Representation: A Graph Theory Approach
This paper proposes a representation technique based upon graph theory that provides a new viewpoint to understand the writing process and is aimed at representing the data provided by ScriptLog although the concepts can be applied in other contexts. Expand
Cumulative Revision Map
A new visualization technique is proposed for version-controlled documents that reveals interesting authoring patterns in papers, computer code and Wikipedia articles that are useful for the readers, participants in the authoring process, and supervisors. Expand

An interactive visual survey of text visualization techniques that can be used for the purposes of search for related work, introduction to the subfield and gaining insight into research trends is presented. Expand
1 Statistical Modeling of Writing Processes
Until now, writing has been described in the research literature as the interplay of situations, strategies and phases – with phases being identifiable temporal procedural units with typical dominantExpand
Methodology : from speaking about writing to tracking text production
This chapter starts from two methodologically complementary ways of doing research into real-life writing processes and outlines a typology of state-of-the-art methods in writing research that is informed by Applied Linguistics (AL). Expand
Visualization of Text Streams: A Survey
This work presents a survey of methods that visualize text streams, classified and compared from the aspect of visualization process, and introduces new aspects of method comparison: data type, text representation, and the temporal drawing approach. Expand
An Algebraic Process for Visualization Design
We present a model of visualization design based on algebraic considerations of the visualization process. The model helps characterize visual encodings, guide their design, evaluate theirExpand
