Eigenvalue

Passed on by the very talented Mo: a video clip about the Eigenfactor team and how they try to track the flow of ideas… Science is about connections – indeed – and we need better ways to understand and navigate these connections.

Eigenfactor applies more of a google like approach, rather than just measuring citations locally and adjusts for differences in disciplines. I don’t know whether this is the appropriate way to do this, but I sure like the direction this is taking.

I like the visual presentations, but would really appreciate a more obvious way to navigate the data, focusing on particular papers and authors and topics in a science2.0 kind of way.

Anyways, thanks, Mo!
