    Gender and Science in Development: Women Scientists in Ghana, Kenya, and India.Wesley Shrum & Patricia Campion - 2004 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 29 (4):459-485.
    Why do women have more difficulty pursuing research careers than men? Although this topic has been extensively investigated in industrialized countries, prior studies provide little comparative evidence from less-developed areas. Based on a survey of 293 scientists in Ghana, Kenya, and the Indian state of Kerala, this article examines gender differences on a variety of individual, social, and organizational dimensions. The results show small or nonexistent differences between women and men in individual characteristics, professional resources, and the organizational conditions under (...)

    Digital Video as Research Practice: Methodology for the Millennium.Wesley Shrum, Ricardo Duque & Timothy Brown - 2005 - Journal of Research Practice 1 (1):Article M4.
    This essay has its origin in a project on the globalization of science that rediscovered the wisdom of past research practices through the technology of the future. The main argument of this essay is that a convergence of digital video technologies with practices of social surveillance portends a methodological shift towards a new variety of qualitative methodology. Digital video is changing the way that students of the social world practice their craft, offering not just new ways of presenting but new (...)

    How Experiments Begin: The Formation of Scientific Collaborations. [REVIEW]Joel Genuth, Ivan Chompalov & Wesley Shrum - 2000 - Minerva 38 (3):311-348.
    Multi-organizational collaborations are increasingly important incontemporary science, but their formative processes have beenneglected by scholars in the social studies of science. Based onan examination of 53 collaborations in physics and relateddisciplines, we have found five types of formations.Collaborations that encountered greater difficulties in formingbecame more formal in their organization and management.

  7. Has the Internet Reduced Friendship? Scientific Relationships in Ghana, Kenya, and India, 1994-2010.Heather Rackin, Paige Miller, Mark Schafer, Paul Mbatia, Dan-Bright S. Dzorgbo, Antony Palackal & Wesley Shrum - 2017 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 42 (3):491-519.
    Has the Internet changed the pattern of social relations? More specifically, have social relations undergone any systematic change during the recent widespread diffusion of new communications technology? This question is addressed using a unique longitudinal survey that bookends the entire period of Internet diffusion in two African nations and one Indian state. We analyze data on nine professional linkages reported by a population of agricultural and environmental scientists in Kenya, Ghana, and Kerala over a sixteen-year period. Factor analysis reveals two (...)

  9. Gender, ICTs, and Productivity in Low-Income Countries: Panel Study. [REVIEW]Wesley Shrum, Ricardo Duque & B. Paige Miller - 2012 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 37 (1):30-63.
    This essay presents the first analysis of gender differences in productivity using panel data on scientists in low-income countries. About 540 researchers in Ghana, Kenya, and Kerala were studied using the same survey instrument in 2001 and 2005. Results indicate very few gender disparities in outcomes at either period of the study with one exception: productivity in international journals. The authors show that substantial gains in access to technology and higher education by women have not reduced the gender gap on (...)

  10. Institutional Collaboration in Science: A Typology of Technological Practice.Wesley Shrum & Ivan Chompalov - 1999 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 24 (3):338-372.
    An increase in the scale of modern science is associated with the proliferation of a new kind of research formation: collaborations involving teams of researchers from several organizations. Historical and sociological studies indicate substantial variation in such formations, but no general classification scheme exists. The authors provide the outline of a scheme through a systematic analysis of multi-institutional collaborations that span a variety of fields in physical science. First, general dimensions of scientific collaborations were identified through a qualitative, historical analysis (...)
