Abstract : Abstract.— Diffusion and spatial structuring of a research question in molecular biology.— This article is a case study that provides a geographic approach to study the evolution of a scientific community of global dimensions.A corpus of 908 representative publications on a question of molecular biology was analyzed. We show that the results obtained in bibliometrics are extremely sensitive to the aggregation levels of data. The longitudinal analysis focuses on the spatial diffusion of the research question.The use of graph theory helps better examine the effects of time on the structure of the co-publication network and by extension on the spatial organization of the scientific community.
