  • 1. Relational Capital and Social Capital: One or two Fields of Research? Kaisa Still, Jukka Huhtamäki, Martha G. Russell ICICKM 2013, Washington, DC, USA http://bit.ly/icickm2013src
  • 2. Introductions Kaisa Still VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland kaisa.still@vtt.fi Jukka Huhtamäki Tampere University of Technology jukka.huhtamaki@tut.fi // @jnkka Martha G. Russell mediaX at Stanford University martha.russell@stanford.edu
  • 3. Why this study? • Social capital and relational capital are often used in literature in association with each other or interchangeably We found inspiration from Landström‟s (2012) study on whether innovation and entrepreneurship are one or two fields of study Instead of looking at the authorship, we went to analyze the reference/citation structures between the authors in the two disciplines Citation network can be seen as an information network representing the relatedness of subject manner (Newman 2010) • • •
  • 4. Method and data • Scopus data: 2,000 most cited social capital articles and 144 most cited relational capital articles • Authorship analysis done using Scopus‟ in-built analytics • Reference network: 1. CSV export from Scopus 2. Author name extraction (Python) 3. Author name curation (Google Refine) 4. Network creation (Python &NetworkX) 5. Network analysis and visualization
  • 5. Author Activity Most active authors in relational and social capital literature Michael A. Hitt
  • 6. Social Capital Reference Network
  • 7. Social capital authorities
  • 8. Example: Social capital literature “By „social capital,‟ I mean features of social lifenetworks, norms, and trust– that enable participants to act together more effectively to pursue shared objectives.” (Putnam, 1995)
  • 9. Relational Capital Reference Network
  • 10. Relational capital authorities
  • 11. Example: Relational capital literature
  • 12. Social Capital & Relational Capital
  • 13. Limitations • The exact search phrases “social capital” and “relational capital” were used to collect the data Quality of data-driven analysis is a function of the quality of the data: Scopus data is limited and e.g. author identification remains a challenge •
  • 14. Conclusions • Citation network analysis does help in understanding scientific literature and, we claim, in facilitating the development of a subject area Social capital and relational capital are related but distinct domains; only 4 out of 20 key authorities are shared The evolution of the two domains should be analyzed further to reveal the evolution of the literature and the diffusion of the to concepts • •
