@janellecshane I'd be so curious if you did something like this for the entire arXiv repository, which would also generate a bunch of science-y titles. How would later-in-career papers differ from theses, if at all?

@kawa That would be a fun dataset! Not sure how to distinguish pre- vs post- degree papers, but just the list of paper titles would be fun.

@janellecshane hah, this strikes me as something sci-fi writers would have a blast with 😂
