Abstract:The visual information in scientific could play an important role, but few bibliometric studies investigate it. In order to emphasize the importance of the visual aspect of scholarly communication, a new field called viziometrics is recently proposed. This paper presents an ongoing project for a case study of viziometrics where we focus on western blots within Alzheimer's Disease (AD) literature. We first develop a computer vision method to detect western blots from the images of figures. Then we extract thousands of western blots from AD papers and show a preliminary analysis.
