Updated Findings

In the study, we found that the number of citations for VIS from non-VIS papers has been increasing dramatically but we did not analyze the publication venues. We did it later and found that citations coming from IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics accounted for 12.4% of all 153,549 citations (undeduplicated). Citations from Computer Graphics Forum, HCI venues, PacificVis, and journals in the filed of Visualization such as Information Visualization and Journal of Visualization are also major sources. This indicate that the impacts of VIS are mostly confined to visualization and HCI areas. Detailed results are available at https://hongtaoh.com/files/top_venues.html.
