about

This study explores the flow of information within and among academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities through analyses of the patterns of scholarly book reviewing. An elite sample of scholarly monographs published by university presses between 1971 and 1990 was used. Beginning with Derek de Solla Price, the measurement of communication within the disciplines of science has been ongoing. In the present book that field of inquiry is summarized and provides a basis for examining the flow of information in the social sciences and humanities.

Editorial Reviews

?A pioneering work in that bibliometrics has generally developed around the natural sciences, with their emphasis on understanding scientific communication patterns through journal articles rather than monographs; something which is quite different from humanities and social science researchers who tend to place more value on monographs.?-Public Library Quarterly
