Special Issue Information
With advancements in analytical tools and the availability of online citation databases, the number of studies based on bibliometric methodologies has grown at an unprecedented rate. Bibliometrics can be defined as the application of mathematical and statistical methods to publications. It can be used as a supporting tool for tracking the dynamics and evolution of scientific research output, and for decision-making when setting research priorities.
This Special Issue aims to present the latest research in the field of bibliometrics. We welcome original studies and reviews of bibliometric analyses on topics related to human health, such as public health, environmental health, digital health, mental health, global health, health behavior, chronic disease, infectious disease, and geriatrics. In addition, methodological aspects of bibliometric research are welcome.
Possible topics for this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- Applications of bibliometrics in health and medicine;
- Bibliometric evaluation of meta-analysis on health interventions;
- Advancements in bibliometric research methodologies;
- Comparison of different bibliometric analytical tools;
- Comparison of different citation databases;
- Reliability and validity issues in the application of bibliometrics; and
- Reporting standards for bibliometric studies.
I look forward to your contributions to this Special Issue.
Dr. Malcolm M. Koo
