Since his death, some of Pingree's more circumstantial reconstructions have been pushed back against both by those more cautious and those more under the sway of geo-linguistic disciplinarity. This volume reminds us that Pingree's transmission-oriented vision of, for example, the history of astronomy in India as part of a worldwide history of science, the most comprehensive and integrative such history yet attempted, is supported by a dossier of evidence drawn from many sources, including sources from outside India: from the Pahlavi Bundahishn, for example, or from what survives of the work of the Abbasid astronomer, Ya'qub ibn Tariq.

And that space of performance--carved out in a moment when subjectivity and traditional skill were rightfully being taken apart--is generatively with us still, though it has begun to shift and transform with increasing intensity of late, quietly welcoming forms of virtuosity and disciplinarity into its realm.
Scottish Medicine and Literary Culture hearkens to a time when science and literature had not been siloed by disciplinarity. Today, with too much to know in any field, there is again a virtue to connectivity.
The metrics are classified into six different groups (and an individual metric may fall into more than one category): productivity metrics, which provide information about the volume of publications; citation impact metrics, which demonstrate influence; collaboration metrics, which demonstrate partnerships; disciplinarity metrics, which show how an institution's publications are assigned to fields; "power" metrics correlated to institutional size; and finally, proprietary measurements called "Snowball Metrics" [1].
