BIBLIOMETRIC LITERATURE REVIEW
The term Statistical Bibliography was first used by E. Wyndham Hulme in 1922 while delivering lectures at the University of Cambridge. Over time, the term Bibliometrics has evolved, which simply refers to statistical analysis of bibliography information of published manuscripts and documents. In recent year with the development of sophisticated software tools and new bibliometrics measures, we can do much more than only citation analysis. After taking this course you will have knowledge of most common bibliometric analysis methods (e.g. co-citation, bibliographic coupling) and softwares (e.g. VosViewer, Biblioshiny). The course is designed for PhD students, post-doctoral fellows, researchers and young faculty members interested in bibliometric literature review analysis. Highly motivated Master students may attend. The course has eight modules:
- Introduction to Bibliometric Literature Reviews
- Planning A Bibliometric Literature Review
- Bibliometric Metrics and Algorithms
- Bibliography Data Extraction
- Bibliometric Analysis using VosViewer
- Bibliometric Analysis using CiteSpace
- Bibliometric Analysis using Biblioshiny
- Advanced topics in bibliometric literature review
