SOARES, Glaucio Ary Dillon; SOUZA, Cíntia Pinheiro Ribeiro de  and  MOURA, Tatiana Whately de. Colaboração na produção científica na Ciência Política e na Sociologia brasileiras. Soc. estado. [online]. 2010, vol.25, n.3, pp.525-538. ISSN 0102-6992.

The collaboration among authors for scientific production is more common in the natural and exact sciences than in the human sciences. The numbers of co-authorships has increased, both in absolute and relative numbers, as did the interest on studying this process. Researches on co-authorship networks try to identify collaboration patterns in specific subjects or institutions. The present study identifies scientific production patterns in eight Brazilian journals of Political Science and Sociology. The main goal is to compare the characteristics of articles written in collaboration with those written individually. Are they different? And the specific goal is to identify and describe the cognitive styles of network vs individual production. We tested the hypothesis that experimental and empirical papers present are more frequently written in cooperation than theoretical ones. We analyzed variables that identify time, space or author specification in the titles, and the use of quantitative data, tables, graphics and regression analysis in the text. Co-authorship characteristics in Political Science and Sociology may indicate collaboration patterns and point to network structures in these subjects.

Keywords : co-authorship; network; scientific production; Political Science; Sociology.
