I am working with some colleagues on a proposal for a study of the 
published research on gambling and the community of researchers who do 
this research.

Our hypothesis, or speculation, is that a field that has been operating 
for a long time  e.g., Physics  is more likely to have stable, dense 
networks and otherwise characteristic patterns of collaboration and 
citation than a field that has been operating for a short time.

Any suggestions re literature relevant to this topic would be greatly 

Best, Peter Carrington
