Keyword Abstract

EtoloGuía, 1997, 15():17-30.

URL: Subjects: Citation analysis | Eugene Garfield Abstract: "Mediante la investigación científica pretendemos generar conocimiento relevante que describa el Universo, su estructura y los procesos subyacentes. Para arrojar luz sobre lo desconocido, los investigadores debemos comprobar qué es lo que sabemos como comunidad científica. Por ello es necesario estudiar los hallazgos y el conocimiento generado por otros, y dar la máxima difusión a los resultados de nuestra investigación. En este juego de leer, comunicar para ser leídos, e intentar que nuestras ideas tengan la máxima implantación en una disciplina, es necesario tener en cuenta el conocimiento existente, y que otros investigadores reconozcan nuestro trabajo. En este contexto, la referencia al trabajo de los demás se convierte en un acto obligado."
