Organizing and managing comparative research projects across nations: Models and challenges of coordinated collaboration


Esser, Frank; Hanitzsch, Thomas (2012). Organizing and managing comparative research projects across nations: Models and challenges of coordinated collaboration. In: Volkmer, I. Handbook of Global Media Research. Chichester: Wiley-Blackwell, 521-532.

Abstract

Comparative research requires extensive resources in terms of time, manpower, funding, and infrastructure. While collaboration is certainly a key to solving many problems related to mostly scarce resources in academic research, there are also many substantial reasons why collaboration makes a Iot of sense. One of these is that the collective cultural expertise of a collaborative research network can never be achieved by a single researcher. Hence, the question is not whether or not collaborative research is worthwhile but how to organize and manage it effectively. The chapter discusses various models of collaboration with regard to their advantages and disadvantages.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
