The map was developed as an experiment to find new ways of working with the Library’s data and to create innovative ways to explore the resources we have available. Using a subset of data, the keyword map shows the top 25 related keywords of Open Access publications in eSpace.

Keywords in UQ eSpace are primarily assigned by library staff and sometimes by students/academic staff. They are an organic and uncontrolled vocabulary of terms that represent the content of the article and indicate its field and sub-field.

Sample search terms

Search for keywords in our publications. Some examples are:

  • Australia
  • Sustainability
  • Higher education
  • Case-control
