Scientific Socialisation and the Alignment of Networks
In preceding chapters we have considered the way in which networks, constructed as they are under the auspices of interests, inevitably differ when their guiding interests are divergent. In this chapter we tackle the alternative mentioned at the beginning of Chapter 12, that of alignment: to what extent and under what circumstances is it possible to match networks? What are the forces that tend to produce convergence rather than divergence?
