Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: Identify the research lines present in the Journal Información, Cultura y Sociedad (ICS), through network analysis, defining historical trends of interest, as well as opportunities to cover knowledge gaps. Methods: A cross - sectional descriptive study based on research published in ICS from its inception until 2016, considering as key elements the keywords, considering them as referring to the issue of publication. The evaluation had two approaches: number of occurrence of the nodes in the study period and analysis of power relations, scope and greater impact among them, applying Network Analysis (AR). Finally, it was comparatively evaluated the occurrence versus relations between nodes. Results: We reviewed 197 research papers, identifying 570 key words or research topics. The AR established that the majority of research papers have Argentina as the main topic, with a greater interest in issues directly related to librarianship, few of which correspond to cross-cutting themes and related to other environments. Conclusions: The greatest number of research topics in ICS are linked to library techniques and processes, so there is an opportunity to strengthen the content of the publication with transversal topics of an organizational type, such as knowledge management, information management Organizational, intelligence or business surveillance.
