This article analyses the Croatian Scientific Bibliography (CROSBI) as a social application using a number of different approaches. By analysing and visualizing the conceptual network the core of keywords is determined for each scientific field: biomedical sciences, biotechnology, social sciences, humanities, natural sciences and technical sciences. Through the interpretation of core concepts by meta-data from another social application (Wikipedia) it is concluded about the disproportion of interpretative capabilities of two social systems: the Croatian scientific community and the public. Additionally through a social network analysis between scientific areas according to a social (scientific collaboration) and conceptual (keyword co-affiliation) another disproportion is revealed regarding interdisciplinary research.
