A Citation Content Analysis of ICOADS Publications
In this vein, we are interested in how publications that announce or describe a dataset are currently being cited, and the ways that these citations may or may not be similar to citations made directly to the datesets themselves. To operationalize this work, we've adopted a method of Citation Content Analysis (Zhang et al., 2013). This method uses a socio-cultural approach that combines quantitative “counting” of citations between documents and qualitative “coding” of the syntactic and semantic context of a citation. This poster will present results of our using CCA to code the syntactic and semantic relationships of how and why citations were made to publications that describe a flagship dataset (The International Comprehensive Ocean-Atmosphere Data Set (ICOADS)) hosted by the Research Data Archive at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
