Cay del Junco – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
In contrast to the traditional library instruction aim of finding and evaluating information, critical library pedagogies aim to teach students to analyze and challenge the power structures that determine what kind of information is deemed valuable. STEM librarians have been slower to take up these approaches than our colleagues with other…

Janis Joyce Shearer – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2024
Academic and research libraries historically lack intentional engagement with Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities. This scoping review examines how academic and research library literature address social justice issues by engaging BIPOC with science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or medicine (STEMM) disciplines in…

Yuening Zhang; Dylan Yu – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2023
Journal coverage is an important factor to consider when evaluating a database. In this study, we counted the number of articles (including early access articles) in newly-launched journals (2018-2022) from two major association publishers in engineering and computer science: the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the…

Sherriff, Graham; Rand, Dustin – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
Exploration of "prior art"--the state of a technology's development, as manifested in literature, documentation, and artifacts--has many benefits for engineering students. It expands their understanding of the design problem, reveals a range of possible solutions, and develops research skills important to professional practice. While…

Slebodnik, Maribeth; Pardon, Kevin; Hermer, Janice – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2022
The number of systematic reviews (SRs) published continues to grow, and the methodology of evidence synthesis has been adopted in many fields outside of its traditional health sciences origins. SRs are now published in fields as wide ranging as business, environmental science, education, and engineering; however, there is little research looking…

Sterner, Elizabeth – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2021
scite is a startup based in Brooklyn, New York, and funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health. With scite, researchers can use "smart citations" to see the context, the location, and the classifications of citation statements. This tool is a work in…

Hendrigan, Holly – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2019
Awareness of faculty research interests is an important aspect of a subject librarian's responsibilities. This paper illustrates the potential of Voyant Tools, an application in wide use among digital humanities researchers, to reveal word patterns in the research output of applied science faculty. A corpus of recent article citations from Web of…

Cusker, Jeremy – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2018
In 2012, this author published a paper describing a method for using the raw data from Web of Science to examine the journals cited by any given group of researchers and then compare that list to lists of 'top journals' of similar disciplines. It was not a straightforward method to use and required a great deal of effort and spreadsheet work by a…

Flaxbart, David – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2018
A citation analysis of chemistry PhD dissertations at the University of Texas at Austin yielded data on how often graduate students cite books in their bibliographies, and on the characteristics of the books cited, in terms of age and local ownership. The analysis examined samples of dissertations selected from five discrete years--1988, 2006,…

Kuglitsch, Rebecca; Bordeaux, Julia R. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2017
In this paper, we explore how librarians can teach students to deconstruct the concept of authority using questions and considering contextual needs in STEM fields. We argue that examining the complexities of common signifiers of authority, such as peer review, citation rates, and types of sources, as well as exploring contextual factors such as…

Fransen, Janet – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2012
Any engineering librarian will tell you that their researchers' literature needs differ from researchers in other disciplines: Books are used less, and conference papers more, than in humanities disciplines. This study analyzes literature cited in theses and dissertations submitted over a three-year period by students in three departments of the…

Brazzeal, Bradley – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2011
Wikipedia has been the subject of an increasing number of studies. Many of these have focused on the quality of Wikipedia articles and the use of Wikipedia by students. Little research has focused on the use of Wikipedia by scholars. This study helps to fill that gap by examining citations to Wikipedia in chemistry journals from three major…

Fowler, Kristine K. – Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship, 2011
This article reports research mathematicians' attitudes about and activity in specific scholarly communication areas, as captured in a 2010 survey of more than 600 randomly-selected mathematicians worldwide. Key findings include: (1) Most mathematicians have papers in the arXiv, but posting to their own web pages remains more common; (2) A third…
