This paper fills research gaps by presenting a research weaving analysis of the roles of buffer strips in agricultural fields. The paper provides a set of concrete workflows, software tools and recommendations for applying research weaving methods in an evidence mapping context, particularly for post-screening applications.

Through the inspection of network visualizations, basic network statistics and cluster-level analyses, the authors demonstrate how these methods can be used to reveal new knowledge. The authors also discuss the unique challenges of conducting research weaving and propose solutions to address these problems.
