    Can’t resist forwarding a little news that I thought was very interesting

    The above is an article from PLOSone entitled *Clickstream Data Yields High-Resolution Maps of Science* Take a peek because, long story short, it concludes that

    *Maps of science resulting from large-scale clickstream data [about 1 billion user interactions with scholarly web portals] provide a detailed, contemporary view of scientific activity and [here’s the truly important part as far as I am concerned] correct the underrepresentation of the social sciences and humanities that is commonly found in citation data.*

    What a shocker — there is a necessary, desirable, and ACTUAL connection between sciences and the arts, humanities and social sciences for those who study in these disciplines — which means what starts out in genetics may end up in economics having passed through religion, philosophy and sociology.

    See figure 5 for the visual representation.
