Mapping scientific excellence

Several months back, the MIT Technology Review highlighted this map of scientific research establishments, colour-coded by the estimated probability of publishing “excellent” papers (papers which belong to the 10% most-cited papers within their subject category). Some interesting patterns are visible.
