Diversity of references as an indicator of the interdisciplinarity of journals: Taking similarity between subject fields into account

Lin Zhang, Ronald Rousseau, Wolfgang Glänzel
2015 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
Subject fields and subfields were obtained from the Leuven-Budapest (ECOOM) subject-classification scheme, while disciplinary diversity was measured taking variety, balance, and disparity into account.  ...  Interdisciplinarity is operationalized by the diversity of subject fields assigned to cited items in the article's reference list.  ...  Acknowledgment The first author acknowledges the National Natural Science Foundation of China Grant (71103064), Universities innovation team of philosophy and social sciences support plan in Henan province  ...

Interactive Overlays of Journals and the Measurement of Interdisciplinarity on the basis of Aggregated Journal-Journal Citations [article]

Loet Leydesdorff, Ismael Rafols, Chaomei Chen
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Since this indicator of interdisciplinarity is normalized between zero and one, the interdisciplinarity can be compared among document sets and across years, cited or citing.  ...  The maps are based on the 10,000+ journals contained in the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) of the Science and Social Science Citation Indices (2011).  ...  We acknowledge support by the ESRC project 'Mapping the Dynamics of Emergent Technologies' (RES-360-25-0076).  ...

Indicators of the Interdisciplinarity of Journals: Diversity, Centrality, and Citations [article]

Loet Leydesdorff, Ismael Rafols
2010 arXiv   pre-print
A citation-based indicator for interdisciplinarity has been missing hitherto among the set of available journal indicators.  ...  Betweenness centrality in symmetrical (1-mode) cosine-normalized networks provides an indicator outperforming betweenness in the asymmetrical (2-mode) citation network.  ...  This measure takes into account both the reach of a journal in terms of its degree-because this number (n ≤ N; N = 8,207) limits the maximal uncertainty within the subset-and the spread in the pattern  ...
