A relational database for bibliometric analysis
AbstractIn this article a relational database schema for a bibliometric database is developed. After the introduction explaining the motivation to use relational databases in bibliome-trics, an overview of the related literature is given. A review of typical bibliometric ques-tions serves as an informal requirement analysis. The database schema is developed as an entity-relationship diagram using the structural information typically found in scientific articles. Several SQL queries for the tasks presented in the requirement analysis show the usefulness of the developed database schema. --
