Interdisciplinary team of the ANR-Lab implements projects in several key research areas:
- Sociology of science: the study of research teams through the analysis of bibliometric data and analysis of textual information. Within this area, a project is being carried out to analyze the structure of the international scientific community of network researchers (which began as an analysis of the Russian research community), which analyzes the networks of collaboration and collaboration between scholars, citations and sociations between authors and journals, as well as the thematic structure of the network research field in general and over time. The project analyzes large amounts of data from the Web of Science database. Another ongoing project within this area is devoted to the study of interactions among Soviet and Russian sociologists and is based on the application of the methodology of mixing quantitative and qualitative methods (mixed methods) in analyzing narrative texts (biographical interviews).
