We are investigating the manner in which different scientific fields differ in their communication cultures. Our research methodology combines quantitative (graph-theoretic) and qualitative (ethnographic) techniques, which mutually inform each other. In this paper, we present the results of a case study on the identification and classification of scientific collaborations based on structural patterns in co-authorship networks. We investigate three co-authorship networks in specialised subfields… CONTINUE READING
