Collapsing Ivory Towers? A hyperlink analysis of the German academic blogosphere
Fecher, B. & Kaiser, J.
The Impact Blog
In a substantial analysis of over 500 German-speaking science blogs, Jonas Kaiser and Benedikt Fecher look at what hyperlinks are used within prominent science blogs to investigate how scientists link to each other and outside sources. Using visualisation and mapping software, their results show how science blogs form new networks beyond traditional disciplines and interact with the wider general blogosphere.
