oa South African Journal of Libraries and Information Science - Research in Library and Information Science in South Africa : an analysis of journal research output from 1993-2006

Volume 73, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0256-8861



This paper intends to promote an awareness of the overall research output in library and information science in South Africa, and is based on a publication count and analysis of peer refereed articles indexed in the LISA and Thompson Scientific (formely ISI) Web of Science databases (SCI,SSCI,A&HCI) between 1993 and 2006, using journal, subject and author indicators for the analysis. The recommendations are in favour of expanding the publication threshold by diversifying the output such that it includes currently marginalised domains.
