Chronicle: Citation by Citation, New Maps Chart Hot Research and Scholarship’s Hidden Terrain

Jennifer Howard’s article “Citation by Citation, New Maps Chart Hot Research and Scholarship’s Hidden Terrain” in the 11 September 2011 Chronicle of Higher Education discusses recent research and application development by a team led by two biologists, Carl T. Bergstrom and Jevin D. West, and a physicist, Martin Rosvall to map connections among research articles in different disciplines.

Their bibliometric analysis and the tool they are developing may help researchers to discover research outside their fields in journals that they would not normally read.

The article is on line for subscribers to the Chronicle, but a paper by Rosvall and Bergstrom, “Mapping Change in Large Networks,” is available in open access on line.
