There has been an increase in research published on information behavior in recent years, and this has been accompanied by an increase in its diversity and interaction with other fields, particularly information retrieval. The aims of this study are to determine which researchers have contributed to producing the current body of knowledge on this subject, and to describe its intellectual basis. A bibliometric and network analysis was applied to authorship and co-authorship as well as citation… 

Analysis of co-authorship network and thematic pattern of the articles in the Journal of Public Management Researches

Background and aim: In recent years, journals and quarterly journals have placed a great emphasis on increasing scientific collaboration in articles. Therefore, in this paper, the analysis of social

An evaluation of information behaviour studies through the Scholarly Capital Model

This research used co‐authorships and h‐indices to investigate authors who have published papers in the field of information behaviour between 1980 and 2015 and shows a relationship between the authors’ connectedness and the venue (journal) representation.

Exploring the topic structure and evolution of associations in information behavior research through co-word analysis

The results uncovered an unbalanced distribution of topics, and that the topics cluster into six communities representing subdivisions of this field: information behavior in patient-centered studies; information interaction in the digital environment; information literacy in health and academic contexts; health literacy on the Internet; informationbehavior in child- centered studies; and information behaviorIn medical informatics.

Evolution of Cooperation Patterns in Psoriasis Research: Co-Authorship Network Analysis of Papers in Medline (1942–2013)

The analysis of 28,670 documents sheds light on different aspects related to the evolution of scientific collaboration in the field, including the progressive increase in the mean number of co-authors, and the rise in multi-authored papers signed by many different authors.

Social Media and Information Behavior: A Citation Analysis of Current Research from 2008–2015

ABSTRACT This article presents a survey study of social media and information behavior research published from 2008 to 2015 by way of bibliometric principles. Web of Science, Scopus, and Google

Using social network analysis to complete literature reviews: a new systematic approach for independent researchers to detect and interpret prominent research programs within large collections of relevant literature

This paper provides a method for generating a co-authorship network from reference lists and the partition of the co-Authorship network into communities provides a reviewer with direction to organise literature into meaningful groups.

An author co-citation analysis of 37 years of iMetrics

The results suggest the crucial role of Price medalists in shaping the intellectual structure of knowledge in iMetrics.

Mapping the interdisciplinarity in information behavior research: a quantitative study using diversity measure and co-occurrence analysis

Although variety of disciplines in this field augmented significantly, the distribution of disciplines is unbalanced and concentrated on some dominant disciplines such as computer science, engineering, psychology, social science and medicine, etc.

Who is who in library and information science research? The integrative application of scholarly influence indicators

The results showed that the top 10 authors of library and information science research with the highest scores in terms of influence indicators were mostly concerned with the field of scientometrics, which can be considered as the special impact of scientometric authors on the intellectual structure of research especially in recent years.



How human information behaviour researchers use each other's work: a basic citation analysis study

If and how human information behaviour (HIB) research is used by others is determined, and it appears to be a second stage discipline, marked by theoretical consistency and exponential growth in publications and new researchers.

Citation relations of theories of human information behaviour

Interrelation of models and theories of human information behaviour (HIB), their common roots, and the extent to which they are indebted to the fields other than library and information science (LIS)

International coauthorship and citation impact: A bibliometric study of six LIS journals, 1980-2008

This researcher proposes geographies of invisible colleagues and a geographic scope effect to further investigate the relationships between author geographic affiliation and citation impact.

A bibliometric chronicling of library and information science's first hundred years

It is shown that, despite a striking growth in the number of journals, papers, and contributing authors, a decrease was observed in the field's market-share of all social science and humanities research.

Examining the relationship of co-authorship network centrality and gender on academic research performance: the case of chemistry researchers in Pakistan

Findings indicate a moderating role of gender on the relationship of both degree and closeness centrality with research performance for Pakistani female authors.

Co-citation analysis and the search for invisible colleges: A methodological evaluation

This paper summarizes the present state of co-citation analysis and presents several methods of clustering references and shows that the methods of cluster and factor analysis hitherto used have only a limited value in differentiating clearly between schools of scientific research - the 'invisible colleges'.

How can we investigate citation behavior? A study of reasons for citing literature in communication

Three types of judgments about cited works were found to best predict citation: that the work was novel, well-known, and a concept-marker; that citing it might promote the authority of one’s own work; and that it deserved criticism.

How can we investigate citation behavior?: a study of reasons for citing literature in communication

Authors' motivations for citing documents are addressed through a literature review and an empirical study. Replicating an investigation in psychology, the works of two highly‐cited authors in the

Who is the best connected scientist? A study of scientific coauthorship networks

Using data from computer databases of scientific papers in physics, biomedical research, and computer science, networks of collaboration between scientists in each of these disciplines are constructed and a variety of possible ways to answer the question "Who is the best connected scientist?".
