Comment on Kronegger, Ferligoj and Doreian Qual Quant (2011) 45:1023–1024 DOI 10.1007/s11135-011-9486-1 Martin Everett Published online: 13 May 2011 © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2011 The paper by Kronegger et al. (2011) DOI 10.1007/s11135-011-9484-3 makes an impor- tant contribution to help us understand the dynamics of scientific collaboration in an area of Europe that has in recent history gone through a period of significant change. The existence of a rich dataset which on the face of it seems comprehensive and complete together with detailed attribute data provided the authors with a rich source of information which they have exploited using network analytic techniques. The work is clearly laid out and very well constructed. The six hypotheses they present are clear and precise and they set out about examining these with consummate skill using tools and techniques developed by the authors. The fact this data extends over a long time period means the dynamical aspects of the changes can be readily seen. Of course it would have been good to have some comparisons from countries that had not been through such radical changes. Independence in 1991 and the move towards European integration in 2004 exactly coincides with the expansion of the internet and the use of Quality & Quantity Springer Journals
