In last few years, an increase in globalization of scientific research has been experienced. The scientific literature which was growing steadily couple of decades earlier has shot up since then (Robert et al
Context analysis is a new method for appraising a body of publications. The process consists of creating a database of attributes
assigned to each paper by the reviewer and then looking for interesting relationships in the data. Assigning the attributes
requires an understanding of the subject matter of the papers. We present findings about one particular research field, Management
of R&D at the Section Level. Our findings support the view that this body of academic publications does not meet the needs
of practitioner R&D managers. The paper discusses practical aspects of how to apply the method in other fields.
In the discussion paper on this issue, Vanclay ( 2011 ) describes and uncovers several weaknesses of the JIF based on a thorough literature review and detailed empirical analyses. In this short comment we would like to add the results of two studies

Despite the growing rates of specialized literature, there is a lack of systematic, chronological and synthesizing studies indicating how this

A main challenge in the SSH is that

and from most areas of the discipline. As the leading journals in information science, such a study may help to understand the interactions among the disciplines relating to information science.
