Part of the Alphabeta development for Mendeley. The design was created to show the difficultly in finding relevant research papers online. The different sized glass balls represent different papers, with size related to popularity. It is usually easy to find the most popular papers however less popular ones tend to slip through the net, even if they are more relevant to the search. The illustration is overlaid with the code used to extract metadata from papers.
