Explain how knowledge flows through a citation network using a flow diagram.


1. Knowledge flows through various channels like verbal communications, books, documents, videos, audio, and images, playing a crucial role in the research community and the formulation of new knowledge.

2. In engineering research, knowledge primarily flows through books, theses, articles, patents, and reports.

3. Citing sources is important for the transmission of knowledge from previous work to new innovations.

4. Knowledge production can be related to citation networks.

5. Knowledge flows among co-authors during research collaborations, among other researchers through paper citation networks, and across institutions, departments, research fields, or topics.

6. If paper A cites paper B, knowledge flows through the citation network across institutions.

7. The interdisciplinary nature of research encourages collaboration among scholars, improving research quality.

8. Co-authored publications tend to have more citations than single-author papers, and there is a positive correlation between the number of authors and the number of citations.

9. Co-authorship citation networks demonstrate relationships between citations and different types of collaborations.

10. Papers that frequently cite collaborators also tend to cite collaborators of collaborators, suggesting that collaborations impact citation counts.
