Dear list members and social network researchers,
I've just created a facebook group to debate Mr. Robert Zoellick, president of The World Bank, challenge. He proposed the creation of a new multilateral economic collaboration network to deal with problems that are beyond present G7 structure.
He said: “We need a Facebook for multilateral economic diplomacy.” (Source: http://www.worldbank.org.pl/WBSITE/EXTERNAL/COUNTRIES/ECAEXT/POLANDEXTN/0,,contentMDK:21929863~pagePK:1497618~piPK:217854~theSitePK:304795,00.html?cid=3001).
The main goal of this new facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=38002907602) is to debate how scientific research on social network analysis could support a "network for frequent interaction" in order to provide data, network analysis and networking sites and other applications to improve economic relationships in a global networked economy. The focus is on scientific information and social network approach.
I'd be glad to have researchers interested in social network economic analysis as members.

Subject: Re: New ways of measuring research
The following recent paper:
Despina G. Contopoulos-Ioannidis, George A. Alexiou, Theodore C.
and John P. A. Ioannidis, "Life Cycle of Translational Research for
Interventions," Science (5 September 2008) Vol. 321, no. 5894, 1298 -
may be of interest to those following this thread. Alma mentions
measurements of ROI, and the paper is an attempt to measure the time
an initial discovery and a highly-cited clinical trial showing effective
intervention. One can imagine expanding this study to encompass
trials that did not have a positive outcome, or automating the process
order to cover a representative sample of *all* reported trials, so as
paint a better picture of actual ROI.
In case the paper is of interest, Janet Stemwedel's blog post about it
likely be useful also:
