MEDIA REVIEWS
This book is particularly recommended for practicing bibliometricians to gain a historical overview of their field, for humanities-oriented scholars of bibliometrics as a way of engaging with the key debates of the field, and for policy makers and research managers who need to understand bibliometrics because of its use within their sphere of operations. It is well-written, authoritative, and valuable . . . This book would be an excellent text for students enrolled in an academic librarianship course because it provides a good overview of the complex issues academic librarians face in today's environment. This book is a testament to all the researchers and practitioners who are trying to ensure that academic librarians meet the needs of their clientele. * Library & Information Science Research *
A broad and enjoyable introduction to the history, theory and techniques of bibliometrics. * Higher Education Academy: Information and Computer Sciences, August 2009 *
