Paperscape is a tool to visualize papers in Arxiv (Arxiv is a free open archive for scientific papers and preprints), but not the information inside the papers, the relation between papers. Each paper is represented by a circle, and the size of the circle represent how many citations it has. To group together the papers they use an algorithm based on the common citations between papers.

So basically, is a tool to see what is going on in physics and what are the important things in your area.


Ok, let’s give it a try.

I’m going to look for Neural Network,s my old topic (hope to go back soon).


Nice, they lay close to quantitative biology.

And now my new topic, magnetic domain walls.


Not bad! Pretty close actually! And  computer science is in between!

Hope you like it.
