Tracing the context in disciplinary classifications: A bibliometric pairwise comparison of five classifications of journals in the social sciences and humanities
Examination of the differences in the disciplinary profile of an article along with the absolute and relative number of articles across disciplines using five disciplinary classifications for journals shows that the choice of disciplinary classification can lead to over- or underestimation of the absolute number of publications per discipline.

Characterizing health informatics journals by subject-level dependencies: a citation network analysis
This study performs an analysis of citation statistics from health informatics journals using data set extracted from CrossRef to show that the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA) has more in-citations than the Journals of Medical Internet Research (JMIR) and JMIR; while JMIR has a higher number of out-Citations and self- citations.
Web of Science (WoS) and Scopus: The Titans of Bibliographic Information in Today's Academic World
An all-inclusive description of the two main bibliographic DBs by gathering the findings that are presented in the most recent literature and information provided by the owners of the DBs at one place is provided.
Towards Interdisciplinary Research: A Bibliometric View of Information Communication Technology for Development in Different Disciplines
This paper attempts to discuss the interdisciplinary nature of the research field ICTD and recommends prospective directions for new subdisciplines based on the text analysis and employs well-known indices of the coherence coefficient and Kullback-Leibler divergence.
Cognitive Distances between Evaluators and Evaluees in Research Evaluation: A Comparison between Three Informetric Methods at the Journal and Subject Category Aggregation Level
Six informetric approaches to determine cognitive distances between the publications of panel members and those of research groups in discipline-specific research evaluation are compared, finding that the barycenter method usually scores better than the SAPV and WCS methods.
Study on the law of aging in Library and Information Science
PurposeAging research has traditionally been an important research topic in the field of Library and Information Science(LIS). The study of aging enables us to grasp the extent of development and the
Determining cognitive distance between publication portfolios of evaluators and evaluees in research evaluation: An exploration of informetric methods
The main objective is to propose informetric methods to identify panel members who have closely related expertise in the research domain of the research groups based on their publications profile, and introduce a number of methods that allow measuring cognitive distances based on publication portfolios.


Content-based and algorithmic classifications of journals: Perspectives on the dynamics of scientific communication and indexer effects
This study test the results of two recently available algorithms for the decomposition of large matrices against two content-based classifications of journals: the ISI Subject Categories and the field-subfield classification of Glanzel and Schubert (2003).
Can scientific journals be classified in terms of aggregated journal-journal citation relations using the Journal Citation Reports?
The factor-analytic solutions allow us to test classifications against the structures contained in the database; in this article the process will be demonstrated for the delineation of a set of biochemistry journals.

Which Type of Citation Analysis Generates the Most Accurate Taxonomy of Scientific and Technical Knowledge?
Direct citation provides a more accurate representation of the taxonomy of scientific and technical knowledge than either bibliographic coupling or co‐citation, and it is found that discipline‐level taxonomies based on journal schema are highly inaccurate compared to topic‐levelTaxonomies, and recommend against their use.
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.
Large-scale analysis of the accuracy of the journal classification systems of Web of Science and Scopus
A new methodology for constructing a publication-level classification system of science
This work introduces a new methodology for constructing classification systems at the level of individual publications, and presents an application in which a classification system is produced that includes almost 10 million publications.
The structure of the Arts & Humanities Citation Index: A mapping on the basis of aggregated citations among 1,157 journals
Using the Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI) 2008, mapping techniques previously developed for mapping journal structures in the Science and Social Sciences Citation Indices are applied and a division into approximately 12 subsets is suggested.
Turning the tables on citation analysis one more time: Principles for comparing sets of documents
New citation impact indicators based not on arithmetic averages of citations but on percentile ranks are submitted, demonstrating that the proposed family indicators are an improvement on averages-based indicators because one can account for the shape of the distributions of citations over papers.
