Changing Patterns of Limnology Literature, 1966-1976.
Milby, T. H.
Literature citations were analyzed to identify periodical literature used in the field of limnology. Journals published in four different countries during 1976 were selected as source journals of cited literature. The results of this analysis were compared to those of a similar study conducted in 1968 using conference proceedings as source journals for citations, to determine (1) if differences in citations exist based upon the choice of citing journals and (2) if changes have occurred in the literature during the intervening time period. The report concludes that most of the same titles appear in both studies, that a large and diverse body of literature is used by limnologists in support of their research, and that the literature needs of limnologists change over time.
