One of the science maps commissioned for "The Places & Spaces: Mapping Science" exhibition is featured in a 2-page story in the SEED magazine, online at seedmagazine.com. The article – "Scientific Method: Relationships among Scientific Paradigms" – describes the map as "constructed by sorting roughly 800,000 published papers into 776 different scientific paradigms."

"Places & Spaces" is curated by SLIS faculty member Katy Börner and Julie Smith, Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center. It was "created to demonstrate the power of maps." [Places & Spaces website]
The exhibit was on display at the New York Hall of Science from December 2006 to February 2007. The next exhibit venue is the 233rd ACS National Meeting & Exposition, Chicago, IL, March 25-29, 2007.
