Patterns of Intellectual Influence in Scientific Research
Cole, Jonathan R.
Sociology of Education, 43, 4, 377-403, Fall '70
An attempt to empirically test conflicting hypotheses on whether scientific discoveries are the result of research by many or few scientists. The data, drawn from physics, supports the hypothesis that physicists making important discoveries depend on the research of a relatively small number of scientists. (Author/JB)
