An Outline of Bibliometrics and Citation Analysis.
Quantitative analysis of scientific literature and especially citation networks have been used to illuminate many aspects of science and research. These studies, formally called statistical bibliography, are now described by the term bibliometrics. This paper provides a survey of bibliometrics including a set of necessary definitions, the scope and structure of bibliometric studies, and a cursory review of some seminal papers. Some suggestions for future research are presented, and a bibliography is attached. (JVP)
