PINTO, Adilson Luiz; RODRIGUEZ BARQUIN, Beatriz Ainhize; MOREIRO GONZALEZ, José Antonio  and  KAURIC, André. Analysis of the Social Network in Serial Publications: representation in the Journal of Documentation. Investig. bibl [online]. 2009, vol.23, n.48, pp.13-32. ISSN 2448-8321.

The construction of maps of social networks is shown based in the Journal of Documentation during the period 1988-2005. The analysis is made by: (i) authors that produce the most within the publication, (ii) authors with the greatest centrality and frequency in quotes received, (iii) the documents with the highest number of citations during the period, and (iv) the journals most used in the consumption of information. 681 entries were retrieved, which were divided into 288 book reviews, 172 journal articles, 14 editorial materials, 12 article reviews, 9 reprints and 2 bibliographic items. The bibliographic information of the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) was the original source for the treatment of the data and the program used was CiteSpace, which automatically generates the maps of relationships.

Keywords : Social Networks; Analysis of Journals; Information Consumption; Journal of Documentation.
