Global maps of science based on the new Web-of-Science categories
The 222 ISI Subject Categories for these two databases in version 4 of WoS were renamed and extended to 225 WoS Categories (WCs), and a new set of 151 Subject Areas was added, but at a higher level of aggregation.
Emergence scoring to identify frontier R&D topics and key players
An approach to identify emergent topics of technological convergence: A case study for 3D printing
A forward diversity index
An indicator to measure the diffusion of scientific research is introduced and it is found that self-cites do not, in most cases, significantly influence diffusion scores.
Measuring the development of a common scientific lexicon in nanotechnology
The growth in nano-prefixed terms in a corpus of nanotechnology scholarly publications over a 21-year time period is examined to consider whether these findings signify the maturation of a scientific field and the extent to which this denotes the emergence of a shared scientific understanding regarding nanotechnology.
Tracking researchers and their outputs: new insights from ORCIDs
This work analyzes the adoption and integration of an open source, cross-national identification system, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID system (ORCID), in Web of Science metadata and indicates limitations in the adoption of ORCID.
Visualization of Disciplinary Profiles: Enhanced Science Overlay Maps
Abstract Purpose The purpose of this study is to modernize previous work on science overlay maps by updating the underlying citation matrix, generating new clusters of scientific disciplines,…
Updating a search strategy to track emerging nanotechnologies
Identifying nanoscience and nanotechnology (nano) publications in global databases is essential to profile and track research in this ever-changing field. Crafting an effective search query to…
Validating indicators of interdisciplinarity: linking bibliometric measures to studies of engineering research labs
This article compares knowledge of research processes and impact based on ethnographic studies of a well-established researcher’s laboratory, together with personal interview data, against bibliometric indicators of cognitive integration, diffusion, and impact represented in the entire portfolio of papers produced by this researcher over time.
