Following the Science

Following the Science is a data visualization project that celebrates the collaborative efforts of the global science community to help humankind understand and survive the pandemic. A testament to the value of empirical research, a feel-good perspective on the pandemic, and a toast to the hard work of science, the project explores research about COVID-19 published on PubMed Central (an online database of biomedical and life sciences research articles). In 2020, about 1 in 10 articles added to PubMed Central was related to coronaviruses. Using animated data visualizations, Following the Science honors the synergistic work of the researchers behind those articles, illustrating cooperation across the globe and across disciplines. Simply scroll down the page to view the project, and navigate all the way to the bottom to learn about the methodology behind it. Following the Science was created by Jeff MacInnes, a data scientist, visualization designer, and visual storyteller.
