In recent years, academics with different professional formation other than Information Sciences have been involved in research related to metric studies using approaches and techniques based on bibliometrics; however, these professionals do not have knowledge and necessary competences for conduct metric information studies in a rigorous and methodical way. This article aims to find what are methods and tools used by bibliometrics researchers through a descriptive and textual analysis, using methods such as word co-occurrence in bibliographical data extracted from scientific articles indexing in Web of Science, research area “Library & Information Science.” We find most frequently software and tools used in bibliometrics have four levels for data treatment: recovery, preparation, processing and analysis, visualization; and use different methods analysis: networks social, geospatial, thematic, temporal, bibliographic coupling, among others.
Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
The results obtained can be used to design UV radiation sources, as well as devices for protecting fiber systems based on hollow-core fibers, designed to deliver high-power laser radiation, from damage when an optical discharge occurs. In addition, since the propagation velocities of light-detonation (and simply detonation) waves exceeding 100 km/s are realized when an OD moves along hollow optical fibers , the results of this work can also be used to simulate experiments on studying the motion of bodies with high speeds. This work was supported by the Russian Science Foundation under Grant #19-12-00361.
