A bibliometric and historiographic analysis of the work of Tony van Raan: a tribute to a scientometrics pioneer and gatekeeper

Abstract

Using the HistCiteTM software and downloading searches of the Web of Science database we have created a master collection of 1,518 papers that have cited his work and several subset collections showing his impact in the field of scientometrics and research evaluation. Using the percentile rank indexes of his publications we have demonstrated his high impact in that area and have included a table of 14 of his papers in the 95th percentile of papers published in those respective journals. Using HistCite we also created several additional historiographs of his work, which clearly shows the main papers and books which have influenced his work involving bibliometrics and fractal analysis.
