Patterns of citations to articles within journals: a preliminary test of scatter, concentration and obsolescence by Maurice Bernard Line( Book )
4 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
If citations are concentrated on a relatively small number of articles within individual journals as well as between different journals, selections of key articles can be published that should satisfy a high percentage of library demand for back runs at low purchase cost. To test this hypothesis, a test was carried out on self-citations in three journals in different scientific disciplines. The results show a considerable degree of concentration, though it differs from journal to journal. The relationship of self-citations as indicators of use is discussed, and a comparison was made with citations to the same journals in "Science Citation Index." The papers that were most frequently cited were different at different periods. The data also provided an opportunity to compare synchronous and diachronous obsolescence. Their differences are discussed and the latter is shown to depend on more variables than the former, but differences between the two were not demonstrable. Obsolescence rates were measured as the annual rate of decay in the probability that any one paper of a given age would be cited in any one paper in the same journal of a given year. (Author/NH)

The planning of indexing and abstracting services in the social sciences : coverage, overlap and content by Stephen A Roberts( Book )
9 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Indexing and abstraction services in the social sciences are growing as primary sources. Results are that users become overwhelmed with the number of secondary services they use. Therefore, planning, coverage and overlap are examined in this research report with emphasis on reexamining secondary services and redefining users and users' needs. Overlap and coverage of secondary sources dealing with criminology and public administration were examined. Results showed that adequate but insufficient services are provided. Recommendations of this study are that the decision must be made whether broad or narrow coverage is to occur. It suggests that an identification be made of the material and user evaluation of services. (Ap)

A machine readable data base of social science serials by Stephen A Roberts( Book )
4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
A discussion of one of the main activities of the disiss (Design of Information Systems in the Social Sciences) project is presented in this working paper. A comprehensive Check List of Social Science Serials (closss) is being prepared as a basis for bibliometric studies of the primary and secondary literature of the social sciences. The closss data base will be made machine readable so that a wide range of bibliometric studies can be undertaken using statistical and mathematical techniques. Section 2 of this paper deals with requirements for bibliometric studies. Problems associated with the construction of a machine readable data base are discussed in section 3. Detailed design features and problems of closss are set down in section 4. Section 5 takes a wider view and looks at closss in a number of contexts in which a serials data base can make a contribution. Section 6 concludes the discussion giving some general issues which must be resolved before the future development of closss can be estimated. (Author/NH)
