Effects and their influence on citations
An effect as it relates to citationanalysis is any influencing factor that may change the number of citations an entity such as an author, workgroup, institution, or publication receives. The most well
In this study an attempt is made to establish new bibliometric indicators for the assessment of research in the Humanities.
Data from a Dutch Faculty of Humanities was used to provide the investigation a sound empirical basis. For several reasons
(particularly related to coverage) the standard citation indicators, developed for the sciences, are unsatisfactory. Target
expanded citation analysis and the use of oeuvre (lifetime) citation data, as well as the addition of library holdings and
productivity indicators enable a more representative and fair assessment. Given the skew distribution of population data,
individual rankings can best be determined based on log transformed data. For group rankings this is less urgent because of
the central limit theorem. Lifetime citation data is corrected for professional age by means of exponential regression.
The foundation of the IS constructing method is the citation and co-citationanalysis. The citationanalysis method was pioneered by Garfield et al. (Garfield et al. 1964 ). It is one of the informatics methods developed to analyze the documents

Up to the 1960s the prevalent view of science was that it was a step-by-step undertaking in slow, piecemeal progression towards
truth. Thomas Kuhn argued against this view and claimed that science always follows this pattern: after a phase of “normal”
science, a scientific “revolution” occurs. Taking as a case study the transition from the static view of the universe to the
Big Bang theory in cosmology, we appraised Kuhn’s theoretical approach by conducting a historical reconstruction and a citation
analysis. As the results show, the transition in cosmology can be linked to many different persons, publications, and points
in time. The findings indicate that there was not one (short term) scientific revolution in cosmology but instead a paradigm
shift that progressed as a slow, piecemeal process.
studies utilize bibliometric techniques, with an emphasis on citationanalysis. The argument is that if science is created through scholarly writing, then we can identify documents as the carriers of disciplinary understanding and structure and see
