Hailed as providing new insights into scholarly communication, bibliometrics, or the quantification of bibliographic data, is a set of methods central to the study of formal communication channels. In this volume prestigious international writers, thinkers and commentators in this vital new area of research address questions such as: what are the interdisciplinary contributions of bibliometric methods to scholarly communication (from past to future); What is the relationship between methods currently being applied to this study; Can and should these methods be brought together in a common paradigm?
