Have you ever wondered what is the most discussed science discipline on the Web? As far as I am concerned, yes, I have.
So, firstly, I looked for both a popular and influential classification of science disciplines.
Therefore, I considered the Essential Science Indicators Subject Areas classification and I loosely adapted it for quering on line, resulting in the following 26 clusters:
1) Agricultural Sciences
5) Clinical Medicine
6) Computer Science
12) Materials Science
15) Molecular Biology
20) Plant Science
21) Animal Science
24) Social Sciences
25) Space science
Then, I made the analysis of the presence on Google search engine of those terms, and these are the results:
As you can see in the above cloud, “Engineering” is the most used word, followed at a distance by “Economics”, “Chemistry”, “Physics” and the other ones, until “Animal Science”, the loss employed term.
