Science: Rising in China, Crashing in Russia

Walter Derzko of Smart Economy gives us the heads up on this interesting map, showing citations in Chemistry papers (below). Thanks to some clever programming, plus Google Maps, we can see the distribution of the cities that produce more excellent papers than expected.  Similar figures are also available for physics and psychology.

Note: Professors Loet Leydesdorff & Olle Persson describe the process of how to use “Google Earth, Google Maps and/or network visualization programs such as Pajek, one can overlay the network of relations among addresses in scientific publications on the geographic map.” (PDF)

Green circles indicates frequent citations, red circles low citations and size of the circle indicates the number of publications:


Global Chemistry Papers


Europe Chemistry Papers
