Rousseau, Ronald; Van Hooydonk, Guido – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1996
Describes a direct linear relation between the number of articles in a journal and the journal's impact factor. Hypotheses are presented; theoretical considerations are discussed; and results are described that show exceptions for review journals and translation journals, as well as for journals in mathematics and chemistry. (Author/LRW)

Egghe, L. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1990
Demonstrates that the multiplier that appears in the law of Bradford is not the average production of articles per author nor the average number of articles per journal, contradicting some earlier statements by Goffman and Warren and of Yablonsky. Other mathematical properties of Bradford's law are explored. (15 references) (Author/CLB)

Basu, Aparna – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1992
Reviews the literature on Bradford's law (i.e., an empirical relationship describing the distribution of scholarly articles in relevant journals). A model for the distribution of articles, based on random partitioning, is presented; and a mathematical formulation for a law of scattering is derived. The relationship of the model to Bradford's law…

Buckland, Michael – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1999
Discusses the American Society for Information Science (ASIS), founded in 1937 as the American Document Institute. Examines two traditions in information science--a document tradition concerned with signifying objects and their use, and a computational tradition of applying algorithmic, logical, mathematical, and mechanical techniques to…

Everett, James E.; Pecotich, Antony – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1991
Discussion of journals and the nature of their interrelationships focuses on a loglinear model of citation frequency that allows an examination of the influence between journals of related disciplines. Multidimensional scaling (MDS) is described, and an example using the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) and journals relating to marketing is…

Egghe, Leo; Rousseau, Ronald – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 2000
Examines the notions of aging, obsolescence, impact, growth, utilization, and related concepts in information science. Illustrates the influence of growth on aging, how aging rates can be corrected for growth, and the relation with impact measures. Presents mathematical results, practical calculations, and examples of these concepts. Gives a brief…

Egghe, Leo; Rousseau, Ronald – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 2000
Discusses the influence of publication delays on the aging of scientific literature and explains how the undisturbed aging function and the publication delay combine to give the observed aging function through a mathematical operation called convolution. Shows the convolution of various distributions and considers a paradox between theory and real…

Drott, M. Carl; Griffith, Belver C. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1978
Examines some questions arising in connection with the application and usefulness of Bradford's Law, which describes the dispersion of articles on a particular subject among journal titles. (Author)

McCarn, Davis B.; Lewis, Craig M. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1990
Reviews selected research on the performance of bibliographic and full-text databases. A mathematical model for clarification of the relationship between user behavior and the performance measures of recall and precision is presented. (five references) (MES)

Egghe, L. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1987
Pratt's measure C on the class concentration of bibliometric distributions is calculated and interpreted for the laws of Zipf, Mandelbrot, and Lotka and geometric distribution, and comparisons are made of the results. An explicit mathematical formula which unifies disparate theories is derived and tested. (Author/CLB)

Praunlich, Peter; Kroll, Michael – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1978
Recent mathematical descriptions of Bradford's distribution, and a new formulation that provides a more accurate estimation of the total number of papers and sources on a given scientific subject are presented. (Author/MBR)

Triolo, Victor A; Bao, Dachun – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1993
Proposes a model for technical journal deselection based on the Bradford law of distribution. The model's operational prescriptives, characteristics of the Bradford distribution in the field of pediatrics, and relevance to collection management are discussed. (42 references) (KRN)

Voorbij, Henk J. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1999
This study examined the use and perceived importance of the Internet among students and faculty in the Netherlands through questionnaires and focus-group interviews. Highlights include electronic journals, learning to use the Internet, search engines, needed library support, and problems with subject searching. A copy of the questionnaire is…

Kent, A.; And Others – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1990
Describes a new signature file method, called the multiorganizational scheme, for accessing information from large databases containing both formatted and free-text data. Implementation issues are discussed, and computational results based on a mathematical model are presented, as well as results using a library database. (43 references) (MES)

Cooper, Michael D. – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1991
Develops mathematical models to characterize the probability of continued use of an integrated office automation system and tests these models on longitudinal data collected from 210 individuals using the IBM Professional Office System (PROFS) at the University of California at Berkeley. Analyses using survival functions and proportional hazard…
