This book presents a methodology for visualizing large scientific domains. Authors Moya-Anegon and Vargas-Queseda create science maps, so-called "scientograms", based on the interactions between authors and
their papers through citations and co-citations, using approaches such as domain analysis, social networks, cluster analysis and pathfinder networks. The resulting scientograms offer manifold possibilities.
