The planning of indexing and abstracting services in the social sciences : coverage, overlap and content by Stephen A Roberts( Book )
8 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 43 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 )

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)
