Head Start is intended for scholars who want to get an overview of a research field. They could be young PhDs getting into a new field, or established scholars who venture into a neighboring field. The idea is that you can see the main areas and papers in a field at a glance without having to do weeks of searching and reading. A prototypical implementation for the field of educational technology can be found on Mendeley Labs. The visualization is also used in Conference Navigator 3 and in the Organic Edunet portal.
