Cool stuff from an IDV4GH alum

Hi Abie,

I thought you might be interested in this article that we recently published in the Lancet HIV on “Definitions of Implementation Science in HIV/AIDS.” The full article can be accessed here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S2352-3018(15)00061-2. In this article, we review the use of the term “implementation science” in the HIV scientific literature, then synthesize those existing definitions using network analysis, and finally offer a working definition.

In addition, we used D3 to create an interactive visualization of the network of definitions – available here: http://tinyurl.com/imp-scie-defs-hiv. Hovering over a node reveals the text of the definition; and you can click-and-drag the nodes if any are obscuring author names. Just a few tricks from my days taking your interactive data visualization class 🙂

Thanks for introducing me to interactive data visualization! I very much appreciated your course and I’m happy to have been able to apply your lessons in this article! Hope you’re having a great time with the babies!

Best,
Thomas
