Spring Meeting Highlight – Citation Habits

The Library is a Growing Organism: Innovative Methods, Classic Missions
Date: Friday, 20 April
Time: 9:00 – 3:30
Location: Ithaca, NY (map)
 

Join us this April as Jeremy Cusker discusses a method he has developed for using ISI Web of Science to find the citation habits of whole lists of authors (i.e. an entire academic department) with an eye toward comparing “top journal” lists generated by ISI, Eigenfactor or others to what the faculty he works with actually cite. This can also be used as a tool by new librarians for learning about what the specific research interests of the departments they work with are.

Spring Meeting Highlight – Bibliometrics

The Library is a Growing Organism: Innovative Methods, Classic Missions
Date: Friday, 20 April
Time: 9:00 – 3:30
Location: Ithaca, NY (map)
 

Join us this April as Elaine Lasda-Bergman provides an overview of the basics of bibliometrics and explains some of the resources for measuring scholarly output.
 

Bibliometrics: New Ways to Measure Scholarly Output – Analyzing citation patterns in scholarly literature has long been a means of tracing the history and transformation of ideas as well as measuring the impact or output of individual scholars, journals, institutions, even nations. The so-called “ISI Indexes” (now Web of Science) are the most established and well known resources for bibliometric analysis. More recently, Scopus and Google Scholar are now the “upstart” resources for locating citing references. In addition, new tools and metrics such as the h-index, e-index, SNIP, SCImago Journal Rank, and Publish or Perish have provided the researcher with a greater variety of bibliometric indicators that both compete with and complement those found in traditional sources. This presentation will provide an overview of the basics of bibliometrics and explain some of these new resources for measuring scholarly output.
