What do Political Scientists Study?

. Wednesday, August 19, 2009

From Charli Carpenter over at The Duck of Minerva:
In the April issue of PS: Political Science and Politics, I discovered this little gem: a one-page "article" entitled "Picturing Political Science" which consisted of the following:

"What do political scientists study? As part of a larger project, we coded every article in 25 leading journals between 2000 and 2007. We then created a word cloud of the 6,005 titles using The 150 most-used words appear in the word cloud. The size of each word is proportional to the number of times the word is mentioned. Draw your own conclusions."

International? Check. Political? Check. Economy? Check. Yes, we're relevant!
