B - Applying the author affiliation index to library and information science journals

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
Doi: 10.1002/asi.20895

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.
