The planning of indexing and abstracting services in the social sciences : coverage, overlap and content by Stephen A Roberts( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Indexing and abstraction services in the social sciences are growing as primary sources. Results are that users become overwhelmed with the number of secondary services they use. Therefore, planning, coverage and overlap are examined in this research report with emphasis on reexamining secondary services and redefining users and users' needs. Overlap and coverage of secondary sources dealing with criminology and public administration were examined. Results showed that adequate but insufficient services are provided. Recommendations of this study are that the decision must be made whether broad or narrow coverage is to occur. It suggests that an identification be made of the material and user evaluation of services. (Ap)

A machine readable data base of social science serials by Stephen A Roberts( Book )

9 editions published in 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion of one of the main activities of the disiss (Design of Information Systems in the Social Sciences) project is presented in this working paper. A comprehensive Check List of Social Science Serials (closss) is being prepared as a basis for bibliometric studies of the primary and secondary literature of the social sciences. The closss data base will be made machine readable so that a wide range of bibliometric studies can be undertaken using statistical and mathematical techniques. Section 2 of this paper deals with requirements for bibliometric studies. Problems associated with the construction of a machine readable data base are discussed in section 3. Detailed design features and problems of closss are set down in section 4. Section 5 takes a wider view and looks at closss in a number of contexts in which a serials data base can make a contribution. Section 6 concludes the discussion giving some general issues which must be resolved before the future development of closss can be estimated. (Author/NH)

Characteristics of citations in social science monographs by Stephen A Roberts( Book )

2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Disiss (Design of Information Systems in the Social Sciences) is a research project based at the University of Bath. The objective of the project is to carry out research necessary for the effective design of information systems in the social sciences, whether by the creation of new systems or the modification of existing systems. Analysis of citations in monographs is necessary as a check on the lists of "core" journals provided by analysis of citations in journals, and as a means of identifying particular titles, authors and categories of monograph likely to be in heavy demand or of special importance. The study described in this working paper is designed to identify the main characteristics of citations in social science monographs and other non-serial literature. This paper describes the objectives, methods and preliminary analyses associated with the study. The citation data is taken from social science monograph sources drawn at random from the British, American, French and German book outputs in 1951, 1961, and 1971. This study of citations in monographs complements the data already collected from social science journal sources; comparative analyses are made on the two data files. (Author/NH)
