I've referred to this diagram dozens of times; this is the article on which it is founded. The proper (semi-offocial) name for the diagram (because I keep forgetting it) is the Los Alamos Map of Science. "Maps of science resulting from large-scale clickstream data provide a detailed, contemporary view of scientific activity and correct the underrepresentation of the social sciences and humanities that is commonly found in citation data." Cool.
