Probabilities of scientists diversifying in a sub-field different from their own specialization. Predicted probabilities of a scientist being active in a sub-field different from her own specialization as a function of (a) (binary) social relatedness, and (b) (standardized) knowledge relatedness. Results are obtained by fitting a logistic regression with only one control variable—the scientist’ core field. All coefficients are statistically significant (\(p<0.01\)).
