Analyse des réseaux sociaux (social network analysis)


Beyond aggregated dsitributions, close-up analyses of networks have been pioneered on the citation side by Crane (1972), Garfield (1970), Kessler (1963), and Small and Griffith (1974), as well as on the lexical side, with the coword analysis promoted by the Anglo-French sociology of innovation (Callon, Courtial, Turner, & Bauin, 1983). They are now being renewed by social network analysis, which helps to characterize both local and global properties of networks—for example, the small world (Watts & Strogatz, 1998) structure. Self-similarity, found in most scientific networks and already suggested by aggregate distributions of node degrees, is often put down to self-organization of scientific communities (see, e.g., Katz, 1999).

Bollen (, Toward alternative metrics of journal impact: A comparison of download and citation data, in submitted Information Processing and Management (2005), http://arxiv.org/abs/cs.DL/0503007 external link) suggests to consider an impact factor which a) is to be calculated from both usage data and citation data (not only form the latter); b) would be calculated by metrics based on the topological structure of the existing journal network (of citations and usage, i.e. downloading). These metrics, known as "social network analysis", allow to obtain more significant impact measures, which consider the topological position of a journal inside the network instead of being based only on the number of citations received.

Représentation des réseaux en bibliométrie et cartographie


One day later [June 1960], Allen sent his set of biochemistry articles together with a drawing of the citation relationships between them. Gordon Allen had, in other words, drawn the first citation network: "The arrows indicate the direction in which one would be led in a conventional literature search, starting at any point on the network. A citation index would permit one to trace the arrows in the opposite direction, and hence to find all the articles no matter where on the network he started." He emphasized that this small network was an extract from “a considerably more voluminous literature on the same topic, all tied together with citations”. Garfield reacted strongly: "The material you sent me is magnificent! This must have been a great deal of work. It is fabulous. Why didn’t we think to do this before. I didn’t have this in mind when I said I had some examples of the power of the Citation Index. I merely meant specific articles which could be traced through a CI. (...) I once had the idea that some type of network theory could be used with Citation Indexes. I am now convinced more than ever, from your example, that this will be true."
