Ben Haller: Publication Word Clouds

...back to my home page...

These word clouds were all made by Wordle, a very nice free tool that used to reside at but now appears to be defunct — but I have a local copy of the Java applet that I continue to use.

You might wonder why I've done this. I find word clouds to be a useful way to quickly visualize the key concepts that a paper is about. I sometimes wish that websites like the Web of Science would display word clouds for all papers returned by a search, for example; for me, at least, that would make it much faster to find which papers are relevant. So I'm trying to promote the idea by doing it for my own papers. I also find the process of creating a word cloud for my own papers to be an aesthetic capstone that finishes off the paper for me; it is a way of celebrating the completion of a manuscript and crystallizing its essence.

For a more traditional list of my papers, see my Publications page.
