Description & Coverage
Description:

Over the past 80 years, the way that citation frequency was counted and analyzed changed dramatically from the early manual transcribing and statistical computation of citation data to computer-based citation data creation and its manipulation.

Author Cocitation Analysis: Quantitative Methods for Mapping the Intellectual Structure of an Academic Discipline provides a blueprint for researchers to follow in a wide variety of investigations. Pertinent to faculty, researchers, and graduate students in any academic field, this book introduces an alternative approach to conducting author cocitation analysis (ACA) without relying on commercial citation databases.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • ACA online data retrieval
  • Author cocitation analysis procedures
  • Author cocitation mapping
  • Bibliometrics and informetrics
  • Building custom databases
  • Cocitation counts generation system
  • Decision support systems research
  • Diagonal values in ACA
  • Distance and cluster procedures
  • Intellectual structure mapping of an academic discipline
  • Multidimensional scaling
  • Principal Component Analysis
Reviews & Statements
