On the dynamics of national scientific systems: a reply Qual Quant (2011) 45:1025–1029 DOI 10.1007/s11135-011-9487-0 On the dynamics of national scientific systems: a reply Patrick Doreian · Anuška Ferligoj · Luka Kronegger Published online: 26 March 2011 © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2011 The comments of Everett (2011)and Light and Moody (2011) confirm our sense that, as a part of studying the dynamics of scientific change, we are tackling an interesting and impor- tant set of problems by using a wonderful data set. We appreciate their constructive critiques, especially their prompts to look more closely at the data we have. Their comments also make it clear that we are greatly indebted to the people at Institute of Information Science in Mari- bor (IZUM) for their maintenance of the Current Research Information System (SICRIS) and Cooperative Online Bibliometric and Services (COBISS) data archives. Without these data sets we could not study total disciplinary networks within the Slovene national science system. We are privileged in having access to these data. We agree with Everett (2011) about the value of comparing this national system with other such systems. However, we do not know of one and hope that our efforts could help promote the idea of creating comparable data sets in http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Quality & Quantity Springer Journals
