Baeg, Jung Hoon, Burnett, Kathleen, Bonnici, Laurie and Subramaniam, Mega M. (2011): Navigating the confluence of streams in the development of disciplinary identity, 2004-2009. In: Proceedings of the 2011 iConference 2011. pp. 643-644.

This poster presents preliminary research on the relationship between the iSchools movement and the development of disciplinary identity between 2004 and 2009, the period during which the iSchools organization was officially founded. The goal is to explore whether it is possible to identify trends that emerge from articles written by iSchool faculty and graduate students (i-authors) that appeared in five journals with high impact factor rankings in the areas of Information Science and Library Science (LIS) and Computer Science and Information Systems (CIS) as indexed in the 2009 Journal Citation Reports. These two areas were selected because they represent the disciplinary homes of the majority of the iSchools membership. Descriptive statistics including frequency tables were used to identify trends in the development of disciplinary identity in the study of information. The results suggest that iSchool authors may be selecting publication venues based on the geographic proximity of the journal rather than journal impact rankings, subject matter, or style of work affinities. The researchers plan to conduct author cocitation analysis to further examine the influence of these factors. Graphs and charts are used to present the findings in the poster itself, and additional references will be provided.
