The Shape of Science is an information visualization project whose aim is to reveal the structure of science. Its interface has been designed to access the bibliometric indicators database of the SCImago Journal & Country Rank portal. The Shape of Science shows a very intuitive image of the interconnection of the different subject areas by the position of the journals. The individual profiles of the journals can be accessed from this interface.
