Presentation Description

An automation technique for harvesting bibliometric data about publication trends from GALILEO -based bibliographic databases is presented. A spreadsheet and commonly available scripting languages automate tedious and repetitive keyword searching to reveal publication trends over time, compare trends in peer vs. non-peer publications, and identify clusters of literature found at the intersection of multiple keyword searches. Results of several literature research projects are presented and the potential uses of this technique in instruction and research are discussed.
