Detection of Information Requirements of Researchers Using Bibliometric Analyses to Identify Target Journals

Vadim Nikolaevich Gureyev, Nikolai Alekseevich Mazov


In this study, we used bibliometric analyses to identify journals that are representative of SRC VB “Vector” and IPGG SB RAS. We also describe methods to semiautomatically collect data for an institute’s publications and which journals they cite. Citation analyses of lists of articles and their citations can help librarians to quickly identify the preferred journals in terms of the number of publications, and the most frequently cited journals. The librarian can use these data to generate a list of journals that an institute should subscribe to.
