Using bibliometric methods to map research fields – on the example of Complementary and alternative medicine
Bibliometric methods are often associated to evaluation and ranking of research, at individual, organizational and national level. In this talk I will focus on how bibliometric methods can be used to other purposes, for example to map content of research, collaborative networks, and development of research fields. I will also present some ideas on how bibliometric methods may be combined with qualitative approaches, to get a deeper understanding of research activities. The examples on this will mainly draw on my work on complementary and alternative medicine as a medical sub-field.
Jenny-Ann Brodin Danell is a sociologist and a head of the Department of sociology in Umeå University, Sweden. She is specialised in science and technology studies and her research focuses on health, complementary and alternative medicine and New Age phenomena.
