McNamee, Stephen J.; Willis, Cecil L.
Knowledge: Creation, Diffusion, Utilization, v15 n4 p396-416 Jun 1994
Compares publication patterns in four academic disciplines--chemistry, economics, philosophy, and sociology--to identify structural factors that influence publication patterns. Three general categories of publication outcomes were examined: academic affiliations, peripheral status, and the bureaucratization of science. Findings showed that the degree of stratification varies across disciplines. (Contains 52 references.) (JLB)
