Seeing the Forest for the Trees: a Bibliometric Analysis of Environmental and Resource Sociology
This study of existing publications in two subdisciplines, environmental sociology and sociology in natural resources, takes a systemic approach to analyze patterns and context of knowledge in a range of fields. It was found that there consistantly separate research communities between two clusters of major publications, and the author networks mirror the differentiation between the two subdisciplines of practitioners. However, there is a lack of clustering in the author keywords to distinct research traditions, which reflects the interconnected nature of major topics in both environmental sociology and sociology of natural resources.
