  • This research aims to present the ego-centered topic citation analysis, which is a new application of White's ego-centered citation analysis, for analyzing multilayered knowledge structure of a subject domain. An experimental topic citation analysis was carried out on the folksonomy research documents retrieved from Web of Science. Ego-centered topic citation analyses on folksonomy research domain were conducted in three stages: ego-documents set analysis, topic citation identity analysis, and topic citation image analysis. The results showed that the ego-centered topic citation analysis suggested in this study was successfully performed to illustrate the inner and the outer knowledge structures of folksonomy research domain.

  • This paper focuses on the critique of citation analysis and then attempts to prospect for the future. The development of citation analysis has been marked by the invention of new techniques and measures, the exploitation of new tools, and the needs of evaluation of scientific research. Normative theory takes the lead in this development. But critics have questioned both the assumptions and methods of citation analysis. This critics are based on the microsociological perspective.

  • Augmented reality (AR) is considered to be an excellent user interface to a 3D information space embedded within physical reality. For this reason, it has been applied to various applications such as design, medical service, interaction, and collaboration. However, there is no formal way of analyzing the research trend and evolution of augmented reality. This paper identifies the research trend and change in augmented reality (AR) via co-citation analysis. The co-citation analysis provides how the AR research has evolved, who are main contributors, and which papers suggest essential and influencing impact. To systematically analyze the cocitation, we have retrieved 1,145 papers from the Web of Science and applied a scientomertric analysis using CiteSpace. Based on the co-citation analysis of authors and documents, it is possible to analyze the evolution of augmented reality, key authors and papers, and breakthroughs. We have also compared the proposed approach with survey papers written by experts so that the result of the co-citation analysis can compromise the qualitative result done by experts, and thus it can provide a different view and insight for visualizing the research on augmented reality.

  • Ciatation analysis is a information analysis method based on the phenomenon of citing previous documents in the source document. There are many well-known studies exploring citation analysis and it applications. This paper does not attempt to review this extensive area of applications, but to demonstrate the sociological aspect of citation analysis. Specifically, this paper have reviewed the citation analysis as a quantitative method for the studies of sociology of knowledge. For this, I have described various basic methods such as citation behavior, citation count, impact factor, citation relationship etc. And I have classified into four applied areas of sociology of knowledge; (1) flow of knowledge resources, (2) evaluation of knowledge resources, (3) evaluation of knowledge community, and (4) utilization in terms of knowledge policy. Finally, I have clarified the some limitations and shortcomings of citation analysis that have addressed by citation and citation analysis itself.

  • This study assessed citation analysis results in light of their usefulness for national scientific and technical information (STI) policy formulation and review in Korea. using electrical and electronics engineering field as a case. After brief summary of citation analysis results was presented. current Korean STI policy was reviewed. which aims at establishing national STI sharing system by constructing many STI databases and information networks. Citation analysis results were discussed in light of their significance for Korean databases and information network construction and for use of informal networks such as E-Mail and invisible colleges. The problem of access to current information was also reviewed. Some recommendations were made to policy makers. which include creation of a centralized national STI center: development of guidelines for effective utilization of STI networks and STI; and. standardization of information processing technology and support for the automation of information centers and libraries. Based on the literature review. the best possible way of presenting recommendations to policy makers was examined. It was concluded that citation analysis could be a useful methodology for STI policy formulation and review when reliability and validity of the study is assured and the samples well represent the population of scientists and engineers. Finally recommendations for further research were offered.

  • Despite the widespread use, critics claim that citation analysis has serious limitations in evaluating the research performance of scholars. First, conventional citation analysis methods yield one-dimensional and sometimes misleading evaluation as a result of not taking into account differences in citation quality, not filtering out citation noise such as self-citations, and not considering non-numeric aspects of citations such as language, culture, and time. Second, the citation database coverage of today is disjoint and incomplete, which can result in conflicting quality assessment outcomes across different data sources. This paper discuss the findings from a citation analysis study that measured the impact of scholarly publications based on the data mined from Web of Science, Scopus, and Google Scholar, and briefly describes a work-in-progress prototype system called CiteSearch, which is designed to overcome the weaknesses of existing citation analysis methods with a robust citation-based quality assessment approach.

  • Author co-citation analysis(ACA) technique has been widely used for identifying research areas and trends in a discipline. But this technique has some limitations, mainly due to citation delay, on analyzing current trends and identifying active researchers. In this study, a new method, named as Bibliographic Author Coupling Analysis (BACA), is suggested for overcoming those limitations of author co-citation analysis. BACA is based on Kessler's bibliographic coupling approach and focuses not on documents but on authors. Simply stated, BACA technique assumes that those likewise citing authors have the same research interests. For the purpose of comparing with author co-citation analysis, two preceding studies with author co-citation analysis are reconsidered and re-examined using BACA. The comparing results can be regarded as promising the usefulness of BACA in analyzing current research trends and identifying active researchers.

  • The purposes of this study were to identify core journals for pharmaceutical researches in Korea and to examine the research domains of Korean pharmaceutical researchers. Journal citation frequency analysis and journal co-citation analysis were performed on the research papers of Korean pharmaceutical researchers. Korean researchers' citation data were gathered from SCOPUS for foreign journals and KSCD for domestic journals. 116 core journals were identified through citation frequency analysis and journal relationships were suggested as a pathfinder network of journals. Factor analysis on journal correlation matrix resulted in 18 subject domains and related journal lists were also given.

  • This study intended to make new suggestions by clarifying usefulness of analysis methodology for the intellectual structure of disciplines, which combines author co-citation analysis and author bibliographic coupling analysis. It also aimed to identify the recent research trend and key researchers recently doing research activities actively as well as the intellectual structure in the field of social welfare. It was found to be more efficient to conduct both author co-citation analysis and author bibliographic coupling analysis in order to identify traditional sub-areas of disciplinary subject or the research trend of actual researchers in examining the intellectual structure of a specific discipline.
