The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) and Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron (DESY) libraries have been comprehensively cataloguing the High Energy Particle Physics (HEP) literature online since 1974. The core database, SPIRES -HEP, now indexes over 400,000 research articles, with almost 50% linked to fulltext electronic versions (this site now has over 15 000 search hits per day). This database motivated the creation of the first site in the United States for the World -Wide Web at SLAC… 

Analytical study of contents of LANL physics and cross-listed e-print archives, 1994-2002

The frontiers of physics and cross-listed e-print archives posted during the years 1994-2002 at http:// www.arxiv.org/archives/physics web service of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) are

Citation analysis of LANL High-Energy Physics E-Prints through Science Citation Index (1991-2002)

This investigation provides evidence that e-prints are an integral component of the scholarly communication of physicists. This was especially shown to be the case for the area of high-energy

Spires on the Building of Science: Complex networks and scientific excellence

The knowledge of the citation distributions is utilized to demonstrate the extreme improbability that the citation records of selected individuals and institutions have been obtained by a random draw on the resulting distribution.

The astronomical photometric data and its reduction procedure

The photometric data reduction procedure of the UBVRI photometric system is discussed, which is worldwide utilizing for stellar study from last two or three decades, and the procedure of standardization for the captured CCD images is given.

Citation networks in high energy physics.

The citation network constituted by the SPIRES database is investigated empirically and a consideration of citation distribution by subfield shows that the citation patterns of high energy physics form a remarkably homogeneous network.

Contents of Physics Related E-Print Archives

The frontiers of physics related e-print archives (1994-2002) at http://www.arxiv.org/archives/physics web service are explored from 7770 submissions. No. of e-prints in the six research disciplines

Publication and citation patterns of the Mexican contribution to a “Big Science” discipline: Elementary particle physics

Results show that the Mexican scientific community in EPP follow the pre-publication and pre-citation communication patterns typical of a Big Science field.

A new revolution in scientific publishing, in which journals come to be regarded as an overlay on electronic preprint databases, will probably overtake some areas of research much more quickly than others.

Relying on electronic journals: Reading patterns of astronomers

How astronomers use journals and what features and formats they prefer are identified, which may provide a glimpse of what to expect of journal patterns and use by other scientists.

Using Access Data for Paper Recommendations on ArXiv.org

This thesis investigates the use of access log data as a source of information for identifying related scientific papers for arXiv.org, the authority for publication of e-prints in several fields of physics and compares access, content, and citation-based measures of relatedness on different recommendation tasks.

The Virtual Library in Action

The SLAC Library has turned hundreds of TeX source documents each month into viewable postscript complete with figures, which are linked to the HEP database, and the full-text is rendered universally visible via WWW.

The Large-N Limit of Superconformal Field Theories and Supergravity

We show that the large-N limits of certainconformal field theories in various dimensions includein their Hilbert space a sector describing supergravityon the product of anti-de Sitter spacetimes,

First in the web, but where are the pieces

The author discusses the effort to archive SLAC's Web in two parts, concentrating on the initial effort to identify and gather into the archives evidence and documentation of the early days of the SLAC Web.

The virtual library in action: Collaborative international control of high-energy physics pre-prints

This article discusses how control of the grey literature in high-energy physics preprints developed through a collaborative effort of librarians and physicists and describes one model of a rapidly evolving virtual library for high- energy physics information.

Reference Linking in a Hybrid Library Environment

The SFX-framework has further been generalized in order to achieve a technology that can easily be transferred from one digital library environment to another and that minimizes the overhead in making the distributed information services that make up those libraries interoperable with SFX.
