Summary
Presents more than thirty full-page science maps, fifty data charts, a timeline of science-mapping milestones, and 500 color images, which serve as a sumptuous visual index to the evolution of modern science and as an introduction to "the science of science"--charting the trajectory from scientific concept to published results
