Summary: The work describes an entity-relationship model of collections
of journal papers. This model describes a collection of papers as a
system of coupled bipartite networks, which can be mathematically
expressed using a series of matrices, and further allows many existing
analysis techniques to be expressed and used in a very general way.
Matrix based visualizations are particularly useful, allowing detailed
visualization of structure and dynamics of research specialties.
