and between Communication and other fields is the goal of this research. By using networkanalysis, previous studies found that nine journals from 1975 to 1979 clustered into two groups: speech-communication journals (QJS, CCSJ, and CM) and mass
-degree distribution (Price 1965 ).
Social networkanalysis (SNS) is a sociological research method pioneered in the 1930s. It uses graph theory to study the complex social structure formed by the social interaction between members. Another method in network
This study examines network topologies of interdisciplinary research relationships in science and technology (S&T) and investigates
the relational linkages between the interdisciplinary relations and the quality of research performance. A network analysis
was performed to evaluate the General Research Grant (GRG) program, an interdisciplinary research funding program of the Korea
Science and Engineering Foundation (KOSEF); the dataset covered the 2002–2004 period. The analytical results reveal the hidden
network structure of interdisciplinary research relationships and demonstrate that the quality of research performance might
be enhanced not only by interdependent pressures placed on various research fields but also by accumulated research capabilities
that are relatively difficult to access and reproduce by other research fields.

This paper aims to analyse the collaboration network of the 6th Framework Programme of the EU, specifically the “Life sciences,
genomics and biotechnology for health” thematic area. A collaboration network of 2,132 participant organizations was built
and several variables were added to improve the visualization such as type of organization and nationality. Several statistical
tests and structural indicators were used to uncover the main characteristic of this collaboration network. Results show that
the network is constituted by a dense core of government research organizations and universities which act as large hubs that
attract new partners to the network, mainly companies and non-profit organizations.
The notion of core documents and their application is discussed in the context of scientometric networks. An interesting solution of the problem of the arbitrariness of thresholds emerges from the application of Hirsch-type indices to dense networks as are typically observed in local clustering. Examples from several disciplines in the sciences and social sciences illustrate how these core vertices can be determined using this approach, and visualise how core documents are applied to represent the internal structure of the complete network or of parts of it.
