This paper introduces an additive fuzzy clustering model for similarity data as oriented towards representation and visualization of activities of research organizations in a hierarchical taxonomy of the field. We propose a one-by-one cluster extracting strategy which leads to a version of spectral clustering approach for similarity data. The derived fuzzy clustering method, FADDIS, is experimentally verified both on the research activity data and in comparison with two state-of-the-art fuzzy clustering methods. Two developed simulated data generators, affinity data of Gaussian clusters and genuine additive similarity data, are described, and comparison of the results over this data are reported.
