Description

This book introduces an alternative approach to conducting author co-citation analysis (ACA) without relying on commercial citation databases such as index ISI citation index, based on custom bibliographic database and co-citation matrix generation systems specifically developed to use the custom database. This alternative approach has the capability to access to the non-primary authors of cited references. The inability to access non-primary authors is a critical shortcoming of ACA research utilizing the commercial databases. This book describes step-by-step ACA procedures for novice SAS users. It provides explicit instructions to build bibliographic databases, process them to compile co-citation matrix, prepare SAS input files, and interpret the results. It provides a useful, instructional guideline to conduct research regardless of the bibliographic databases used - in-house databases or commercial citation databases.

Contents

Basic concepts of bibliometrics and author co-citation analysis; building the bibliographic databases; overview of the author co-citation analysis step; the factor procedure; the cluster procedure; multidimensional scaling; an ACA study in an information systems area - the intellectual structure of decision support systems research.
