NICOLA DE BELLIS: BIBLIOMETRICS AND CITATION ANALYSIS, FROM THE SCIENCE CITATION INDEX TO CYBERMETRICS, LANHAM, TORONTO, PLYMOUTH 2009 (rev.)

A review of a book that deals with bibliometrics and citation analysis. Can the methods of science be directed toward science itself? How did it happen that scientists, scientific documents, and their bibliographic links came to be regarded as mathematical variables in abstract models of scientific communication? What is the role of quantitative analyses of scientific and technical documentation in current science policy and management? Bibliometrics and Citation Analysis: From the Science Citation Index to Cybermetrics answers these questions through a comprehensive overview of theories, techniques, concepts, and applications in the interdisciplinary and steadily growing field of bibliometrics.
