Carrières des chercheurs et dynamique des réseaux scientifiques


This paper aims to understand the dynamics of a scientific network of researchers by observing their individual publishing activity. Empirically, we propose to reconstruct the personal network of five emeritus chemists attached to the University of Poitiers and to identify the moments when their relations with a co-author emerge and when those relations are weakened or strengthened. This exploratory and comprehensive study is based on an original methodology combining quantitative and qualitative materials: while publication data provide exhaustive information on the researchers’ co-authorship, CVs and semi-structured interviews with the protagonists allow for a detailed analysis of the dynamics of their relations as their careers unfold
