Acknowledgment Trends in the Research Literature of Information Science.
Cronin, Blaise
Journal of Documentation, v57 n3 p427-33 May 2001
Describes a study that gathered data on acknowledgements in five leading information science journals from 1991-1999. Compared results with data from two earlier studies of the same journals and confirms that acknowledgements have become an institutionalized element of the scholarly communication process, reflecting the cognitive and structural complexity of contemporary research.
