Bibliometrics and the humanities : Slavoj Žižek as an example (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this Bachelor’s thesis is to explore the useability of bibliometric analysis on scientists of the humanities. This is accomplished by doing a case study on philosopher Slavoj Žižek. The work process and the results the case study is able to produce and the limits of these results are then analysed and discussed. In the case study all scientific articles in English published 1987-2010 citing Žižek were analysed. The material was gathered from the databases provided by Thomson Reuters through the Web of Science. Most references to Žižek were published in Cultural Critique, a transdisciplinary journal published in the USA. Organizational behaviourist De Cock had the most references, but literature studies was the most common institution among the authors. The 15 most cited works are monographs, and the most cited is The sublime object of ideology. The most cocited works are by psychoanalyst Lacan or works about his theories. The results show that an analysis of a researcher of the humanities using bibliometric methods provide us with relevant information. However, this information is not as complete as when applied on a scientist in the natural sciences. The main reason for this is the differences in publication behaviour and the lack of relevant material in the databases covering the humanities. Several suggestions for further research is given. These concern more in depth studies of the citations of Žižek, comparative studies using other databases, and the changes in publication patterns within the humanities.
