2003 0-7734-6713-0 This book introduces an alternative approach to conducting author co-citation analysis (ACA) without relying on commercial citation databases such as index ISI citation index, based on custom bibliographic database and co-citation matrix generation systems specifically developed to use the custom database. This alternative approach has the capability to access to the non-primary authors of cited references. The inability to access non-primary authors is a critical shortcoming of ACA research utilizing the commercial databases. This book describes step-by-step ACA procedures for novice SAS users. It provides explicit instructions to build bibliographic databases, process them to compile co-citation matrix, prepare SAS input files, and interpret the results. It provides a useful, instructional guideline to conduct ACA research regardless of the bibliographic databases used – in-house databases or commercial citation databases.
2003 0-7734-6742-4 This is a research guide and bibliography with citation frequency on the decision support systems research area and its references disciplines. It contains only references that have been cited frequently by more than several thousand authors of decision support systems articles published in a set of carefully selected journals according to objective criteria set forth in a data chapter. Each item in the bibliography of the book contains the citation frequency representing its weight and degree of influence on the decision support systems research. Each item represents objective and unobtrusive judgment of all the authors of major articles published in more than 140 information systems journals during 1970-2001. It will be a useful research guide to the DSS literature.
2007 0-7734-5366-0 This book represents an effort to document the intellectual history of Decision Support Systems in terms of contributions made through the combined efforts of many in the management information systems, decision support systems, and many other reference disciplines including management science, psychology, cognitive science, systems science, computer science, communication science, organization science, etc. This book makes a significant contribution to the literature in this field by providing an intellectual history of DSS, examining the intellectual structure, major themes, and reference disciplines of DSS, and investigating the intellectual relationships between the DSS area and other reference disciplines to give a broad picture of DSS fields over the last three and a half decades.
