The role of intermediate network organizations in creating collaboration networks: Exploratory analysis of an international professional association as a heuristic device. Oral presentation at 2017 SciTS Conference. Clearwater Beach, FL. Jun 13, 2017. Collaborations Across Academia, Industry, And Government. Online at: http://www.scienceofteamscience.org/2017-agenda.
Understanding professional networks in a global
context is important for the development of a
collaborative knowledge infrastructure. Little is known
about the role of professional associations and network
organizations in the organization of interactions between industry, science, and government and even
less is known about the ways in which individuals
search for and establish interactions. Most existing
studies are built up on the scholarly co-authorship
networks out of bibliometric databases. In contrast to
this approach, we use attendance data (conference,
specialist groups, and thematic programs) from the
International Water Association (IWA) to explore
heterogeneous network formation. This is done by
analyzing the co-attendance behavior among the
various groups professionals in the water domain.
