This work draws conceptually on evolutionary
approaches to technological change. The empirical part presents a longitudinal
analysis of a database of scientific publications in the field of ophthalmology over a
period of 50 years. Such an exercise allows us to identify pathways of shared
understanding on a disease area, and to map out distinctive trajectories followed by the
ophthalmology research community. The paper also contributes to general
understanding of the innovation process by supporting the notion that knowledge
coordination is a distributed process that cuts across and connects complementary
areas of expertise.
