The Harris et al.
1paper in this issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine reports a network analysis of citation patterns among 1877 papers related to secondhand smoke published between 1965 and 2005. The primary conclusion is that there is not much crossover citation between discovery research on the physical or health effects of secondhand smoke and delivery research that evaluates interventions to reduce secondhand smoke exposure. The authors suggest that this low level of cross-citation between these two networks could be slowing the diffusion of innovation and a lack of cooperation and communication among investigators doing these two different kinds of work.
