Hi experts, I am interested in seeing the journal-cited journal relationship as suggested by the Documentation. However, how should I read the output? There are many journals as nodes, journal and cited journal look the same… so how to distinguish?

Dear Andy,
Nodes from the first field should be lower-cased in the pdf version of the map, and show as a circle
Nodes from the second field should be upper-cased in the pdf version of the map, and show as a triangle

You can force all nodes to be use the same case if you search options in the node advanced settings, in which case the same label can be a journal and a cited journal and show as a down-pointing triangle
Hope it is clearer !
