AbstractIn this paper, we examine the scalability and utility of semantically mapping (visualizing) journals in a large scale (5.7+ million) science, technology and medical article digital library. This work is part of a larger research effort to evaluate semantic journal and article mapping for search query results refinement and visual contextualization in a large scale digital library. In this work the Semantic Vectors software package is parallelized and evaluated to create semantic distances be- tween 2365 journals, from the sum of their full-text. This is used to create a journal semantic map whose production does scale and whose results are comparable to other maps of the scientific literature.
