In the article “US academics put research interdisciplinarity on the map” (News, 20 April), Simon Baker offers a nice example of the mapping of networks of collaboration (and intellectual influence) at Duke University in the US.
In the UK, mapping the range and strength of dynamic social networks for research could enhance the next research excellence framework (as Rupert Lee and I have argued). Both the social theory and the mapping practice can be applied, not just to one academic institution, but globally.
