This marvelous conference took place in Mexico City in August of 2007. It was announced as the First International Symposium on Knowledge Organization, Library Science, and Terminology, and was held at UNAM’s Centro- Universitario de Investigaciones Bibliotecologicas.

The proceedings became available recently, and an analysis appears in my editorial in Knowledge Organization vol. 38 no. 1 (2011): 3-8.

No, not the noun people misuse as a verb …. I’m talking about “impact factor.” Our journal Knowledge Organization has an impact factor of .55; the five-year impact factor is .61. This is pretty low for a scientific journal, which means there is a job to be done by the domain if we want our journal to be taken more seriously.

Impact factor measures (among other things) the degree to which the articles we publish have direct cited influence on future research; or, put another way, it measures citations in our journal to articles cited in earlier volumes in our journal.

If you are writing for any scientific journal it is important to situate your writing in the journal’s domain, and that means if you are writing for KO you ought to be citing KO and Advances in KO (ISKO Proceedings).

Just saying ….

ISKO 10 Citations (originally posted 1-24-2009)   no comments

Posted at 8:40 pm in domain analysis

As editor of the journal Knowledge Organization I have been observing the citations in various papers by different authors. My casual observation that there was little conformity among authors has led to a few small studies of literature in knowledge organization. It is particularly simple to analyze the proceedings of individual conferences to discover whether the papers illustrate any common core. Last summer’s North American Symposium was discussed in v. 34 no. 2; this summer’s 10th International Conference is summarized in v. 35 no. 4. For the latter I produced an Excel spreadsheet, which is somewhat messy, but you can download it from here should you want to play with it. (ISKO_10_citations)
