dc.description.abstract The accrual of symbolic capital is an important aspect of academic life. Successful capital formation is commonly signified by the trappings of scholarly distinction or acknowledged status as a public intellectual.

Our findings, which are domain-specific, suggest that public intellectuals are notable by their absence within the information studies community. en
