No Uniform Culture: Pattern of Collaborative Research in the Humanities
Burroughs, Jennie M.
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v17 n3 p507-527 Jul 2017
This study uses a campus scholarly networking and expertise system to examine trends in coauthorship in order to measure the prevalence of deep collaboration and readiness for team research. Bibliometric analysis of publishing patterns in four departments in the humanities shows significant differences in the rate of coauthorship by type of publication, by department, and by career phase. The data also show that coauthored research has become more common over time. There is notable variation in collaborative practices between departments. This finding suggests that a more granular approach may be needed to incorporate humanities perspectives in team research.
