Finally, all these attributes were combined to create the ‘‘theory functions model’’ shown in Fig. 9, which represents how various empirical and theoretical factors mediate and are mediated by socio-cognitive factors central to the scholarly communication system.

The theory functions model represents a new framework for the investigation of scientific communication.

28 for a somewhat similar categorization). Among these three subcategories, ‘‘positive’’ was the largest, accounting for 57 percent of all ‘‘acknowledgement’’ citations, while ‘‘neutral’’ accounted for 39 percent, and ‘‘negative’’ accounted for only 4 percent. It should be noted that the very small percentage of negative citations is consistent with Chubin and Moitra’s (1975) findings. However, it should also be noted that the ‘‘negative’’ acknowledgement category in this study does not include papers that analyze the theory in detail.

The primary cause of ‘‘fuzziness’’ in the current study was the common case in which a paper analyzed empirical data as an integral part of a theoretical discussion. This ‘‘fuzziness’’ was handled by the following rule: to move beyond assignment to the preliminary category of ‘‘acknowledgement,’’ the citing paper was analyzed to see if it further assessed the theory in either empirical or theoretical terms. Any empirical work was placed in the ‘‘application’’ category if it made use of the theory to explain existing empirical data, or in the ‘‘analysis-empirical’’ category if empirical or simulated data were collected or constructed to test the theory or any of its hypotheses.
