Abstract:This study analyzes scholars' activity on a popular academic blogging and social network site (SNS) in China, ScienceNet. We collected blogs, comments, recommendations, likes, and user profile information and analyzed how different groups of users differ in their patterns of activity with others in different disciplines, professional ranks, and universities. Results indicate that: 1) scholars in management and mathematics are active in recommending and commenting other users; 2) scholars from well-known universities and research institutes often receive more comments and recommendations than those from other universities; 3) scholars with higher professional ranks are more active, and are more likely to receive comments and recommendations from others. These findings suggest different usage of academic SNS among scholars of different disciplines, ranks, and universities.
