Gloor P, Grippa F, Borgert A, Colletti R, Dellal G, Margolis P, Seid, M (2011). Towards Growing a COIN in a Medical Research Community. Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences.
In this paper we describe a longitudinal analysis of the evolution of a team of medical researchers who are trying to establish a COIN consisting of patients of a chronic disease, family members of patients, doctors, and researchers. The data analysis is based on an e-mail archive consisting of the full mailboxes of the six project leaders covering the whole period of COIN formation.
