This report provides an overview of the literature in the main areas of research relevant to the SISOB project. In each case, the review is informed by the basic conceptual model underlying the project. The paper provides a preliminary outline of the model, going on to review the concepts and conceptual tools that will drive the project: social networks, Social Network Analysis and related tools and technologies. The final section provides a review of the concepts, theories and experimental work that underlie the three SISOB case studies, dedicated to researcher mobility, knowledge sharing and peer review respectively, and illustrates how the research described relates to the SISOB conceptual model.
