Traditionally, Bradford's law has been seen as a neutral and objective tool for the selection of the most central information sources in a field. ... Neither Bradford himself nor any follower has explicitly considered the differences between these three and the implications for the practical applications of Bradford's law. ... Implications What are the implications of the three kinds of scattering for the practical use of Bradford's law? ...doi:10.1007/11495222_9 fatcat:ujm4y2y2hfa5baphtkoeosd5ge

Examines 2 problems associated with Bradford’s Law: since empirical data deviate from the law in many what are the significant factors influencing the Bradford graphs; what will be the evolution over time ... behavior of Bradford’s Law. ...
Instead, they require the cooperation of a group of experts in which each participant has their own individual opinions, motivations, background, and interests regarding the existing alternatives. ... This paper reports a bibliometric analysis of the ample literature published in this regard. ... Although Bradford's law predicts that the number of journals in Zone 3 should be 2 × 2.5 2 = 12.5, the empirical number of journals is much bigger: 25. ...doi:10.3390/math8091566 fatcat:6n4donp3qvcvbjxmn73chkui3i

A method for developing acquisition priorities based upon scholarly need is discussed, using some of the newer techniques in the area of information science. ... This everyday logic-in-use may be examined on a formal basis by using Bradford's law. 9 Originally formulated with respect to journal literature, this law, in general, states that a small percentage ...doi:10.5860/crl_38_03_241 fatcat:qtzalh5nrjdu7lbummmu37izki

Re-examines the concept of the nucleus derived from Bradford’s Law of Scatter and finds that Lotka’s Law is applicable to author productivity. Original abstract- amended. ... However, so far few computer models exist in this area. Describes such a model which connects documents. Explains the meaning of integration of scientific texts by connecting documents. ...
Lotka's law was applied to check the authors' productivity, while Bradford's law was used to assess the core journals in this field. ... The data was analyzed for different bibliometric indicators in the Biblioshiny package, an RStudio tool for bibliometric analysis.ResultsThe initial search resulted in a total of 2,906 publications. ... Bradford's law distributes the journals into three zones [zone 1 (core journals), zone 2, and zone 3] with a similar number of papers and an increasing number of journals. ...doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2022.947669 pmid:35910981 pmcid:PMC9326365 fatcat:cghy7kl22vbqvfe72z47vda2ju
