Workshop “Analysis of Bibliographic Networks” at the conference «Networks in the Global World» in St. Petersburg: call for participation
Invitation to the workshop “Analysis of Bibliographic Networks” of Vladimir Batagelj and Daria Maltseva at the conference "Networks in the global world", which will take place on July 4 – 6, 2018 in St. Petersburg.
The conference "Networks in the global world. Patterns of complexity in European societies and beyond" will take place on July 4 - 6, 2018 in St. Petersburg.
At the conference, there will be software workshop organized on the analysis of bibliographic networks, which will be held by Vladimir Batagelj (IMFM Ljubljana and AMI UP Koper) and Daria Maltseva (ANR-Lab).
Bibliographic networks consider different types of relations between publications and their authors, thus underlying different patterns of collaboration in science (co-authorship, co-citation, citing). Data for such networks can be quite easily obtained from special bibliographies (BibTEX) and bibliographic services (Web of Science, Scopus, SICRIS, CiteSeer, Zentralblatt MATH, Google Scholar, DBLP Bibliography, US patent office, IMDb, and others).
During workshop the network approach to bibliographic data and different methods used for their analysis will be presented. Dealing with bibliographic networks we use a special program for analysis and visualization of large networks called Pajek (http://mrvar.fdv.uni-lj.si/pajek/, free for non-commercial use), which is being developed by Vladimir Batagelj and Andrej Mrvar (University of Ljubljana) from 1996, as well as some special programs in Python and R, that provide all necessary procedures to make bibliographic data ready for the analysis. The methodology of analysis of data obtained from the scientific Russian-language library eLibrary.ru, will be presented.
All researchers working in the field of bibliometric analysis are invited to participate. The deadline for submitting an application for the conference with a report is April 16, 2018.
