The upcoming ASIS&T conference will have a number of sessions dealing with collaboration, such as:
Knowledge production and knowledge management in the sciences are being transformed through initiatives such as Cyberinfrastructure in the U.S. and eScience or eResearch in the U.K., Europe, and elsewhere. Science – and other forms of scholarship – are becoming more collaborative, distributed, information-intensive, and data-intensive.
In this paper we compare author cocitation analysis (ACA) results for the highly collaborative stem cell (SC) research field 2004-2009 using three types of ACA: all-author, first-author, and last-author.
In this paper we describe how different accounting procedures affected the counting of scientific paper numbers at the country level and the country ranks based on paper production quantity in physics.
Many theories and models exist for understanding and explaining information seeking processes (ISP) for individuals. Such is not the case for collaborative information seeking (CIS), despite its growing importance. In this paper we take Kuhlthau’s ISP model, designed for individual information seeking, and map it to a CIS situation.
