Mapping of Library and Information Science in Scandinavia : A bibliometric study (English)
Abstract [en]

This paper aims to map and contrast the research front and the research base of Library and Information Science (LIS) in Scandinavia during 1980-1989 and 2003-2013 from articles published in Web of Science. The research questions are: 1. How is the research base and research front in LIS in Scandinavia between 1980-1989 and 2003-2012 structured? 2. What differences can be observed between the two time periods 1980-1989 and 2003-2012 with regards to the research base? 3. What differences can be observed between the two time periods 1980-1989 and 2003-2012 with regards to the research front? This study is based on bibliometrical methods and uses author co-citation analysis and bibliographic coupling. To interpret the results a cluster analysis were made by using the application Vosviewer. When the cluster analysis were made, a content analysis were done on the titles of publications from the cluster analysis to determine what subject category they belonged to. The results indicates that the field of LIS has a large focus on information science, there were hardly any trace of the library aspect of the field. The study also showed that the bibliometric field has grown since 1980-1989. It was also clear that hard and soft information retrieval had grown apart.
