This paper presents first steps towards the development of a formal model of the research process. We evaluate the use of simulation as a tool for the evaluation of research strategies in nascent research organizations faced with the absence of significant data. We start by modeling the research process by using the ¿Publish or Perish¿ paradigm, a well-known criteria of evaluation of research. We demonstrate the use of this model for researchers to evaluate the effects of selection of a…

Toward a Formal, Visual Framework of Emergent Cognitive Development of Scholars
TLDR
This paper presents both formal as well as visual agent-based complex network representations for this cognitive evolution of prolific researchers in the form of a temporal cognitive level network model, and demonstrates the validation of the model using historic data of citations.
Towards a novel unified framework for developing formal, network and validated agent-based simulation models of complex adaptive systems
TLDR
This thesis proposes first steps towards a unified framework using a combination of agent-based and complex network-based modeling approaches and guidelines formulated in the form of a set of four levels of usage, which allow multidisciplinary researchers to adopt a suitable framework level on the basis of available data types, their research study objectives and expected outcomes, thus allowing them to better plan and conduct their respective re-search case studies.
Agent-based tools for modeling and simulation of self-organization in peer-to-peer, ad hoc, and other complex networks
TLDR
It is demonstrated the effectiveness of NetLogo - a tool that has been widely used in the area of agent-based social simulation - in the modeling & simulation of complex networks such as pervasive computing, large-scale peer-to-peer systems, and networks involving considerable environment and human/animal/habitat interaction.
