Relevance distributions across Bradford Zones: Can Bradfordizing improve search? [article]

Philipp Mayr
2013 arXiv   pre-print
Bradfordized lists of journal articles and monographs will be tested in a controlled scenario consisting of different A&I databases from social and political sciences, economics, psychology and medical  ...  The IR tests show that relevance distributions after re-ranking improve at a significant level if documents in the core are compared with documents in the succeeding zones.  ...  Acknowledgement The KoMoHe project at GESIS ("Competence Center Modeling and Treatment of Semantic Heterogeneity") was the starting point and background of this study.  ...

Power-law distributions, the h-index, and Google Scholar (GS) citations: a test of their relationship with economics Nobelists [article]

Stephen J. Bensman, Alice Daugherty, Lawrence J. Smolinsky, Daniel S. Sage, J. Sylvan Katz
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Nobelists in economics were the researchers under analysis, and two types of tests of the GS cites to their works were performed: distributional and semantic.  ...  Distributional tests found that the GS cites to the laureates' works conformed to the power-law model with an asymptote or "tail" conterminous with their h-index demarcating their core oeuvre, validating  ...  One of the best examples of this approach was that of Bookstein (1990; 1997) , who in a three-part article on informetric distributions rigorously analyzed three mathematically defined informetric laws-Lotka's  ...

Infometrics and Music Information Retrieval

J. Stephen Downie
2013 Proceedings of the Annual Conference of CAIS / Actes du congrès annuel de l'ACSI  
The informetric properties of melodies represented as simple collections of intervallic n=grams exhibit some remarkable similarities to the well-known informetric properties of text.  ...  Understanding these similarities can play a vital role in the creation of a successful. . .  ...  The number of informetric distributions to be modelled will be increased to those four used by Wofram (1992a/b): Zipf, Mandelbrot-Zipf, Shifted negative binomial, and Shifted generalized Waring.  ...

Informetric Analyses of Knowledge Organization Systems (KOSs) [article]

Wolfgang G. Stock
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We distinguish between five approaches to KOSs: nomenclatures, classification systems, thesauri, ontologies and, as a borderline case of KOSs, folksonomies.  ...  Quantitative informetric measures and indicators allow for the description, for comparative analyses as well as for evaluation of KOSs and their quality.  ...  Overlap with Other KOSs An approach to study the similarity between KOSs is to count common words and concepts in two KOSs.  ...

Notion of a document: A center of "gravity attraction" for getting metricians together

V. S. Lazarev
1994 Scientometrics  
I agree with Gltinzel and Schoepflin when they mention that bibliometrics, scientometrics and informetrics are drifting apart.  ...  That is why the above observation seems to be true also for bibliometricians and informetricians, being, therefore, a reason for similar impression of corresponding research.  ...  Unless we do not take into account the formulation of the objective of informetrics ("perfection of scientific information activity ''1) the only possible difference between bibliometrics and informetrics  ...
