MySciBlog Survey - Top Read SciBlogs by SciBloggers

posted on 28.12.2014, 01:52 by Paige B Jarreau

In a survey (MySciBlog survey 2014, by Paige Brown Jarreau, Louisiana State University) of over 600 science bloggers, participants were asked to list up to the top three science blogs, other than their own, that they read on a regular basis. The resulting dataset was mapped in Gephi, and laid out according to a ForceAtlas 2 algorithm. Each node represents a science blog (either a survey participant's blog or a blog listed by a participant). Communities (represented in color-coded nodes) were detected automatically in Gephi with a resolution of 3.0. Nodes and node labels are sized according to in-degree (how many times the blog was listed by other bloggers as regularly read).

Update 12/27/2014: Edited files fix several duplicate nodes (same blogs listed under different names, etc.)

Update 12/30/2014: Interactive data graphic available at http://bit.ly/MySciBlogRead.
