Cronin B, Meho Lokman I. Applying the author affiliation index to library and information science journals. Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 2008;59(11):1861-1865
The authors use a novel method - the Author Affiliation Index (AAI) - to determine whether faculty at the top-10 North American library and information science (LIS) programs have a disproportionate presence in the premier journals of the field. The study finds that LIS may be both too small and too interdisciplinary a domain for the AAI to provide reliable results.
