Recent Science Maps
- Virus SuperspreadingA closed space with poor ventilation, a large crowd. And one person feels unwell – or doesn’t yet, but will in a few days. How many people will they infect?
- Which Viruses Like It HotDiscovering how the weather, seasonal, and long-term climate change affects virus transmission
- Epidemiology Models: A HistoryTracing the evolution of epidemiological modeling from its origins to the present
- Epidemiology Models: Additions to SIR ModelingExplaining demographic, spatial and probabilistic models of epidemics and vaccination
- Epidemiology Models: SIR ModelingWe open a series of posts on modeling epidemics. Read the review of papers that use the most popular model
- Bats, Encroachment into Habitat, and New Pandemics. Part 2Here we review why cutting down tropical forests results in new epidemics, where they are predicted to start, and how to reduce the likelihood of virus transmission from bats to humans
- Bats, Encroachment into Habitat, and New Pandemics. Part 1How does human intervention in wild habitat affect the emergence of new pandemics? We explain this on the example of epidemics that have spread from bats. In the first part of the review, we discuss whether bats are “special” as hosts of the viruses, and how the environment affects the likelihood of infection spillover
- How Do We Do Science Mapping?Though we do not specialize in epidemic research, we systematically search scientific literature on a given topic and visualize the connections between publications. In these networks, called science maps, we distinguish clusters that represent meaningful research fields, and describe them in the reviews. Here we explain the details of our procedure.
