Knowledge is what lies between heads of people in a community; This is an idea, I recently learned from a video tutorial on writing research papers in a youtube video. In this video, a professor presents such a model of knowledge which is different from what I already thought.
This suggests a measure of success in research is the amount of change she's able to effect in the space between heads. This video talks about community and people in power in that community. So we must know the community, its structure, who the people in power in the community are, and what knowledge is already in the space between heads.
The ideas proposed in this video seem tantalizing but I feel I haven't completely understood his thesis. I will try to lay out what's hanging me up about this:
I want to understand what a "journal's community" is? since this professor says that will affect the acceptance of a submission.
In short, please help me understand the outlined aspects of this model of knowledge?
Note from question editor: if you have some ideas about how to improve this post further, with the goal of getting it reopened, please grab your red pen and help out. Thanks.
We usually want to know something from a perspective. Here we want to know a community such that we as researchers can better understand how to communicate with the community through Papers. All of the aforementioned sub-questions are around this single thread.
