Hello,
You might perhaps be interested in a multilevel network approach to these issues in science:

Emmanuel Lazega, Marie-Thérèse Jourda, Lise Mounier and Rafaël Stofer (2008), "Catching up with big fish in the big pond? Multi-level network analysis through linked design", Social Networks, Volume 30, Issue 2, May 2008, Pages 159-176. 

With best regards,
E.Lazega
