Subject: Studies using 5-point interaction scale

***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org *****
I'm aware that this five-point scale has been used to measure the nature of interactions between organizations in a network: Awareness, Communication, Cooperation, Collaboration, Integration.  However, I haven't come across any published studies that have used that scale. If you have an example, please send it to me, or send me the reference.

Thank you! --Gregg.
