Most of you should be familiar with the classic work _Little Science, Big
Science_ by Derek John de Solla Price, and the second edition _Little
Science, Big Science
And Beyond,_ with a foreward by Robert K. Merton and
At the recent International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics
(ISSI) meeting in Stockholm, it came to my attention that the books
acknowledgements section failed to acknowledge that Donald deB. Beaver was
the co-author of the paper Collaboration in an Invisible College, which
was correctly entered in the Science Citation Index and cited 179 times.
Chapter 6 is essentially identical to that paper. The complete reference
Price DJD and Beaver DD. Collaboration in an Invisible College, American
Psychologist 21(11):1011-18 (1966).
Until there is an electronic version of the book, I thought it important
to call this omission to your attention.
