Over several decades, Routledge, Taylor & Francis has offered researchers a healthy and diverse array of Library and Information Science (LIS) journals. Given its commitment to this scholarly discipline, it is not surprising that several Routledge, Taylor & Francis journals have recently published articles from dozens of highly-cited LIS researchers.

Ioannidis et al.’s innovative new paper evaluating the top 100,000 scholars across all disciplines (176 in total), including LIS scholars demonstrates this achievement. In their paper, “A standardized citation metrics author database annotated for scientific field,” the authors amass a database of nearly 7 million scholars who have published at least 5 papers in the Scopus and create a composite score for each one. This score is formulated by data on 6 established scholarly metrics: total citations, Hirsch h-index, coauthorship-adjusted Schreiber hm-index, number of citations to papers as single author, number of citations to papers as single or first author; and number of citations to papers as single, first or last author.

The resulting top 100,000 scores are publicly available in two main databases: one for all citations accrued by top scholars from 1996 to end of year 2017, and one for citations accrued during only the full year 2017 to reduce some of the inherent bias against early-career researchers. (Ioannidis et al. also provide their original, nearly 7 million records, author database for ambitious researchers who want to do their own analysis).

The number of LIS scholars in the top 100,000 database are relatively small; only about 300 in total. However, many of them have published in a Taylor & Francis journal since 2010 – over 100 in fact! Below are just some examples of papers written by these top performing LIS scholars. It is noteworthy that they appear in a range of journal sub-topics, from information systems to more niche practitioner journals in the LIS field.

To celebrate our authors’ success, we have made the below articles free to read until the end of the year!

We all know that a library’s impact reaches far beyond the shelves. An academic library is much more than housing for books and sleep-deprived students. It provides a space for academics to find support for their research and empowers them by connecting them with the information they need, when they need it to manifest ground-breaking discoveries. But what happens after those discoveries?

It seems more and more, students are turning to librarians for guidance through the intricate process of submitting their research for publication.

As the role of librarian adjusts to these ever-shifting student needs, Taylor & Francis is continuing to work to help librarian’s champion researchers and de-mystify the publication process through How Researchers Changed the World.”

Information, support and insights from Taylor & Francis and the library community to help you develop your collections, engage your users, enhance your institution’s scholarly communications, and navigate the changing library and information landscape.
