Two Medical Literatures That Are Logically But Not Bibliographically Connected.
Swanson, Don R.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v38 n4 p228-33 Jul 1987
Describes a study which demonstrates that unintended logical connections within scientific literature, which potentially reveal new knowledge, are unmarked by reference citations or other bibliographic clues. Citation analysis of two separate literatures in biomedicine that have a logical link is used to support this hypothesis. (Author/CLB)
