Using the Arts & Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI) 2008, we apply mapping techniques previously developed for mapping journal structures in the Science and Social Sciences Citation Indices. [] Key Method The relations among these subsets are explored using various visualization techniques. However, we were not able to retrieve this structure using the Institute for Scientific Information Subject Categories, including the 25 categories that are specific to the A&HCI. We discuss options for validation such as…

A Reproducible Journal Classification and Global Map of Science Based on Aggregated Journal-Journal Citation Relations
TLDR
This study examines the options for developing an unambiguous classification of the journals into subject categories on the basis of aggregated journal-journal citation data and develops a tree-like classification which can be reproduced unambiguously.
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,
Humanities and social sciences in the bibliometric spotlight – Research output analysis at the University of Vienna and considerations for increasing visibility
A quantitative analysis of the longitudinal research output development in the humanities and social sciences at the University of Vienna examined a six-year period (2007–12). According to target
Science and its significant other: Representing the humanities in bibliometric scholarship
TLDR
The conceptual frameworks, methods, and data sources used in bibliometrics to study the nature of the humanities, and its differences and similarities in comparison with other scientific domains are explored.
Visualization and analysis of SCImago Journal & Country Rank structure via journal clustering
TLDR
This is the first study using Persson’s combination of most popular citation-based links (direct citation, co-citation and bibliographic coupling) in order to develop a scientogram based on Scopus journals from SJR.
Typifying scientific output: a bibliometric analysis of archaeological publishing across the science/humanities spectrum (2009–2013)
ABSTRACT This article presents the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted on all original research papers published in six high-ranking archaeological journals between 2009 and 2013, consisting
Journal maps, interactive overlays, and the measurement of interdisciplinarity on the basis of Scopus data (1996–2012)
TLDR
A global map of science based on aggregated journal–journal citations from 1996–2012 is constructed using Scopus data and can be compared with mappings based on the Journal Citation Reports at the Web of Science.

Maps on the basis of the Arts & Humanities Citation Index : The journals Leonardo and Art Journal versus “digital humanities” as a topic
TLDR
A quasi-JCR for the A&HCI was constructed from the data contained in the Web of Science and is used for the evaluation of two journals as examples: Leonardo and Art Journal.

The place of serials in referencing practices: Comparing natural sciences and engineering with social sciences and humanities
TLDR
The results show that journal literature is increasingly important in the natural and social sciences, but that its role in the humanities is stagnant and has even tended to diminish slightly in the 1990s.
A global map of science based on the ISI subject categories
TLDR
The nested maps of science (corresponding to 14 factors, 172 categories, and 6,164 journals) are brought online and an analysis of interdisciplinary relations is pursued at three levels of aggregation using the newly added ISI subject category of "Nanoscience & nanotechnology".
Referencing in the humanities and its implications for citation analysis
This article studies citation practices in the arts and humanities from a theoretical and conceptual viewpoint, drawing on studies from fields like linguistics, history, library & information
Journal maps on the basis of Scopus data: A comparison with the Journal Citation Reports of the ISI
Using the Scopus dataset (1996–2007) a grand matrix of aggregated journal-journal citations was constructed. This matrix can be compared in terms of the network structures with the matrix contained
Various methods for the mapping of science
TLDR
A detailed study of a co-citation map, its core documents' citation patterns and the related journal structures, is presented and an attempt is made to reflect on the results in terms of further substantial questions for the study of the dynamics of science.
