  • Bibliometrics and Citation Analysis: From the Science by Nicola De Bellis

    By Nicola De Bellis

    Can the tools of technological know-how be directed towards technology itself? How did it occur that scientists, medical records, and their bibliographic hyperlinks got here to be considered as mathematical variables in summary types of clinical conversation? what's the position of quantitative analyses of clinical and technical documentation in present technology coverage and administration? Bibliometrics and quotation research: From the Science quotation Index to Cybermetrics solutions those questions via a accomplished evaluate of theories, ideas, options, and functions within the interdisciplinary and progressively transforming into box of bibliometrics.

    Since quotation indexes got here into the limelight in the course of the mid-1960s, quotation networks became more and more very important for lots of varied study fields. The e-book starts through investigating the empirical, philosophical, and mathematical foundations of bibliometrics, together with its beginnings with the technological know-how quotation Index, the theoretical framework at the back of it, and its mathematical underpinnings. It then examines the appliance of bibliometrics and quotation research within the sciences and technological know-how reviews, specifically the sociology of technological know-how and technological know-how coverage. eventually it offers a view of the way forward for bibliometrics, exploring intimately the continued extension of bibliometric the right way to the constitution and dynamics of the area huge internet.

    This booklet provides beginners to the sector of bibliometrics an obtainable access aspect to a whole study culture in a different way scattered via an unlimited volume of magazine literature. while, it brings to the leading edge the cross-disciplinary linkages among some of the fields (sociology, philosophy, arithmetic, politics) that intersect on the crossroads of quotation research. as a result of its discursive and interdisciplinary strategy, the e-book turns out to be useful to these in each zone of scholarship fascinated with the quantitative research of knowledge exchanges, but additionally to technology historians and normal readers who easily desire to familiarize them
