ABSTRACT:       This paper discusses how stylized facts derived from
bibliometric studies can be used to build social simulation models of science. Based on a list of six stylized facts of science it illustrates how they can be brought into play to consolidate and direct research.
Moreover, it discusses challenges such a stylized facts based approach of modeling science has to solve.
