How to Quantify Connectivity & Networking “Success”

Please see the link below for one example of how to measure the impact of an individuals publications, scientific collaborations, partnerships, scholarly output, quality of work, etc. The criteria used here is based on the network of collaborations that result, how many people one works with or brings into his or her specific arena of research (“Integrated semantic community platform).
