Steele, Thomas W.; Stier, Jeffrey C.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v51 n5 p476-84 Mar 15 2000
This study used citation analysis and ordinary least squares regression to investigate the relationship between an article's citation rate and its degree of interdisciplinarity in one area of environmental science, namely forestry. Findings provide empirical evidence that interdisciplinary methods have made a measurable and positive impact on the forestry literature. (Author/LRW)
