Title:
Hyperlinks as a data source for science mapping
Authors:
Harries, Gareth; Wilkinson, David; Price, Liz; Fairclough, Ruth; Thelwall, Mike
Abstract:
Hyperlinks between academic web sites, like citations, can potentially be used to map disciplinary structures and identify evidence of connections between disciplines. In this paper we classified a sample of links originating in three different disciplines: maths, physics and sociology. Links within a discipline were found to be different in character to links between pages in different disciplines. There were also disciplinary differences in both types of link. As a consequence, we argue that interpretations of web science maps covering multiple disciplines will need to be sensitive to the contexts of the links mapped.
