***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Hi networkers: Here is a really interesting story from NPR. The claim is that more diverse teams make for better quality science, where citations=quality. I have not read the actual study(couldn't find a link in a quick search...). But a major pushback from all the audience so far saying networks=citations. http://www.npr.org/2014/03/21/292225798/does-diversity-on-research-team-improve-quality-of-science?sc=17&f=3 Mark Lubell, Ph.D. Department of Environmental Science and Policy One Shields Avenue University of California, Davis Davis, CA 95618 Email: [log in to unmask] Center for Environmental Policy and Behavior: http://environmentalpolicy.ucdavis.edu/ Personal Homepage: http://www.des.ucdavis.edu/faculty/lubell/ Twitter: @EnvPolicyCenter Phone: 530-752-5880 Fax: 530-752-3350 Office: 2146 Wickson Hall _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
