The pro­ject will address this ques­tion by con­struct­ing pub­lic­tion data­bases of one field each from the social sci­ences and human­it­ies and identi­fy­ing of dif­fer­ent pub­lic­a­tion types in these fields’ research and com­mu­nic­a­tion pro­cessesthe pro­ject util­ises meth­ods of social net­work ana­lysis, quant­it­at­ive and qual­it­at­ive con­tent ana­lysis, and inter­views.
