Visualizing lines of research impact 29 January 2009

 

 

The Eigenfactor Project and Moritz Stefaner have produced some stunning visualizations of Eigenfactor data.  (Thanks to Emma Marris.)

Comment.  Eigenfactor is an OA measurement of research impact.  For background, see our past posts on it.  Because Eigenfactor data are OA, they are free for mashing up or analysis by other projects as well.  It’s easy to be inspired by the beauty and intelligibility of these images.  But we should also be inspired by their suggestion of what can be done with open data.
