High-Resolution Maps of Science... with Religion at the Center!

Be sure to enlarge the network map. 
PLOS ONE: Clickstream Data Yields High-Resolution Maps of Science


According to the above mentioned methodology we constructed a map of science that visualizes the relationships between journals according to user clickstreams. We first discuss the visual structure of the map, and then attempt to validate the structural features of its underlying clickstream model by comparing the latter to journal centrality rankings and an alternative model of journal relations derived from classification data.
 Interesting to see how the sciences are related... with Religion in the middle!
