Shallow science or meta-cognitive insights: A few thoughts on reflection via bibliometrics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The authors conclude this volume by responding to the commentaries of their colleagues and reviewing relevant scholarship that appeared in the bibliometric literature since their literature reviews for the initial three articles in this issue were completed. They conclude, in part, that examination of bibliometric data regarding the entry of an article into the profession’s knowledge base, and its ongoing life therein, may provide insights about the scientific communication process that lead to improvements of that process.
