***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear SOCNET, Does anyone have examples of analysis of information sharing and collaboration networks among employees of US federal agencies? We are beginning a study of information sharing and collaboration between scientists and resource managers in the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and other federal natural resources agencies. We are aware of: Birk, S.M. 2005. Application of network analysis in evaluating knowledge capacity. New Directions for Evaluation, 107, Fall, 69-79. which examined networks among technical experts in the Idaho National Laboratory, but have located no other similar papers. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. They need not be about natural resources agency personnel, but it would be most useful if they were about federal personnel. Thanks! -ken Ken Vance-Borland, Executive Director The Conservation Planning Institute "To protect and restore biological diversity through innovative conservation planning that is focused on effective implementation" Tel:(541)231-7949 Email: [log in to unmask] Skype: ken.vance.borland http://www.conservationplanninginstitute.org/ CPI is an IUCN member organization http://www.iucn.org/ _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
