Group diversity and scientiﬁc innovation: A network study of expertise retrieval and collaboration in modern science.
By answering this question, my study aims to meet the following objectives: 1) to oﬀer a new method through which the interdisciplinarity/diversity of a group based on Heterogeneous Information Networks can be measured; 2)to uncover the key determinants of successful scientiﬁc collaboration and scientiﬁc innovation. Ultimately, I wish to investigate the network foundations of group success in modern science.
