An interactive visualization of article publication data from the 2016 NSF Science & Engineering Report suggest discrepancies in the cultures of science around the world.
Citation network maps may indicate when gaming is taking place. Proving intention is a different story.
Clean, data rich, and intuitive, forest plots can be used to visualize publication metrics.
Scholars are citing an increasingly aging collection of scholarship. Does this reflect the growing ease with accessing the literature, or a structural shift in the way science is funded–and the way scientists are rewarded?
A short video on the art of data visualization, an increasingly important subject in the era of “big data”.
World production of scientific literature continues to grow at nearly 3% per year. China, Brazil, and India account for a much larger share of the world’s output, while the United States and Japan’s share continues to decline. Interactive world maps show the growth of article production, and focus on the countries that continue to dominate the top literature.
The design and construction of article performance measures can reveal deeply held biases.
An animated bubble plot of nearly four-thousand biomedical journals over ten years reveals success, decline and the shifting nature of science publishing.
I recently read a paper from Los Alamos National Labs (LANL), “Using Architectures for Semantic Interoperability to Create Journal Clubs for Emergency Response.” Without diving too deeply into the technical weeds, what the paper describes is: [A] process for leveraging emerging […]
