Eigenfactor and Carl Bergstrom Feature in Seed

It’s nice to see Carl Bergstrom, the driving force behind the Eigenfactor metric for measuring publication use, get written up in Seed magazine. Sez Bergstrom:

…Bergstrom has bigger plans than merely analyzing the importance of various journals. He wants to see how scientists have made science organize itself and change the world like a cartographer once could: “If we can map science, we can help researchers get their bearings, move efficiently among fields in their interdisciplinary endeavors, and find what they need to be reading.”

Carl was always smarter than the Mad Biologist….

(but why is he hiding behind vegetation?)
