Nathalie Schwichtenberg studied sociology and communication and media studies (B.A.) at the University of Rostock, where she graduated with a master’s degree in sociology in 2018. The subject of her master’s thesis was a research approach to the qualitative investigation of online discourses. As a student assistant, she was responsible for the website of the historical institute of the University Rostock. Besides she worked as a tutor for sociological theory, scientific work and methods of social science. Since October 2018, Nathalie Schwichtenberg is a member of the junior research group „Field-specific Forms of Open Science“ at the DZHW.

A Case Study of the Epistemic Function of Citations - Implications for Citation-based Science Mapping.

Seitz, C., Schmidt, M., Schwichtenberg, N., & Velden, T. (2021).
A Case Study of the Epistemic Function of Citations - Implications for Citation-based Science Mapping. In W. Glänzel, S. Heeffer, P.-S. Chi, & R. Rousseau (Hrsg.), Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Scientometrics & Informetrics (S. 1027-1032). Leuven: KU Leuven / International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics (I.S.S.I.).
Abstract

The use of citations as indicators of topical relatedness of publications is common in the algorithmic mapping of the structure of science. References to source documents, however, may serve a variety of epistemic functions, and hence represent rather different dimensions of topical relatedness, such as the research methods used, the empirical objects studied, the theoretical resources build on, the research questions pursued, or the external motivation for and relevance of the work. In this case study, we explore the diversity in topical dimensions along which publications are linked in citation networks, by coding the epistemic function of in-text citations. [...]

Giants or dwarfs on stilts? Scientific trust within research specialties.

Schwichtenberg, N. (2021, Oktober).
Giants or dwarfs on stilts? Scientific trust within research specialties. Vortrag auf der Konferenz Trust in Science, Research group “Trust in information” , High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS) of the University of Stuttgart , Stuttgart, Deutschland.
Abstract

For a long time the scientific production process has been known as resting on the "shoulders of giants" (Merton 1965). But how do scientists know that these giants are actually giants and not dwarfs on stilts? Where do they get their firm footing in science from? How do they know they won't hit hard ground? They do trust in the giants. [...] This paper aims to draw a systematic picture of the role of scientific trust within research specialties. By its field comparative approach it offers a concept of trust for science studies which can be discussed, expanded and modified to apply to further research specialties, disciplines and areas of scientific work.
