Governing the Network
"This book explores what that global network is, and Wagner makes suggestions for ways to improve knowledge gathering and diffusion on a global scale. Readers gain valuable insights about how public policy manages the growing and maturing global scientific enterprise, and how clusters and convergence contribute to forming networks of scientific collaboration around the world. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and professionals." (J. Gelfand, Choice, Vol. 56 (11), July, 2019)
