Walsh, John P.; Kucker, Stephanie; Maloney, Nancy G.; Gabbay, Shaul
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v51 n14 p1295-1305 Dec 2000
Summarizes the preliminary findings from a recent study of scientists in four disciplines with regard to computer-mediated communication (CMC) use and effects. Findings from surveys of 333 scientists indicate that CMC use is central to both professional and research-related aspects of scientific work, and that this use differs by field. CMC use is positively associated with scientific productivity and collaboration. (Contains 30 references.) (Author/AEF)
