Characteristics of Citations in Social Science Monographs.
Roberts, S. A.; And Others
DISISS (Design of Information Systems in the Social Sciences) is a research project based at the University of Bath. The objective of the project is to carry out research necessary for the effective design of information systems in the social sciences, whether by the creation of new systems or the modification of existing systems. Analysis of citations in monographs is necessary as a check on the lists of "core" journals provided by analysis of citations in journals, and as a means of identifying particular titles, authors and categories of monograph likely to be in heavy demand or of special importance. The study described in this working paper is designed to identify the main characteristics of citations in social science monographs and other non-serial literature. This paper describes the objectives, methods and preliminary analyses associated with the study. The citation data is taken from social science monograph sources drawn at random from the British, American, French and German book outputs in 1951, 1961, and 1971. This study of citations in monographs complements the data already collected from social science journal sources; comparative analyses are made on the two data files. (Author/NH)
