  • My research project is situated in the field of webometrics, which I define as the study of quantitative aspects of the construction and usage side of info. resources, structures and technologies on the Web, drawing on bibliometric and informetric approaches. I place webometrics as a generic subfield of cybermetrics, bibliometrics and informetrics – with overlaps with scientometrics. ------------------------------------------- Following widely adopted definitions by, e.g., Brookes (1990), Egghe & Rousseau (1990) and Tague-Sutcliffe (1992) > informetrics embracing the overlapping fields of bibliometrics and scientometrics. Brookes, B.C. (1990). Biblio-, sciento-, infor-metrics??? What are we talking about? Egghe, L. & Rousseau, R. (1990). Introduction to informetrics Tague-Sutcliffe, J. (1992). An introduction to informetrics. Information Processing & Management informetrics = "the study of the quantitative aspects of information in any form, not just records or bibliographies, and in any social group, not just scientists". bibliometrics = "the study of the quantitative aspects of the production, dissemination and use of recorded information" scientometrics = "the study of the quantitative aspects of science as a discipline or economic activity" politico-economical aspects of scientometrics are covered by the part lying outside the bibliometric one. webometrics is entirely encompassed by bibliometrics, because web documents, whether text or multimedia, are recorded information stored on web servers. This recording may be temporary only, just as not all paper documents are properly archived. Webometrics partially covered by scientometrics, as many scholarly activities today are web-based whilst other such activities are even beyond bibliometrics, i.e. non-recorded, like person-to-person conversation. Cybermetrics = "The study of the quantitative aspects of the construction and use of information resources, structures and technologies on the whole Internet drawing on bibliometric and informetric approaches." Cybermetrics exceeds the boundaries of bibliometrics , because some activities in cyberspace normally are not recorded, but communicated synchronously, as in chat rooms.
