Modelling science - dynamic models of knowledge production

Models of science can take very different forms from conceptual models based on historical and ethnographic observations to mathematical descriptions of measurable phenomena. In these models, scholars and science itself become “research objects”. The philosophy, history and sociology of science have produced valuable insights in the nature of scholarly activities as a human activity and social system.

BigGrid: Wikipedia experiment

As example of a knowledge creating system which is self-organized we look into WIKIPEDIA. In this study we will confront the way in which Wikipedia articles are linked with the way they are assigned to their categories.
