We’ve all heard of the classic Introduction to informetrics: Quantitative Methods in Library, Documentation and Information Science, by Leo Egghe and Ronald Rousseau. Both to see how well it survived the test of time and to keep on learning the basics of informetrics, earlier this year I embarked on the adventure of reading this 1990s classic. I wrote down my thoughts on it, organised in two distinctive parts: the continuities and the contrasts I see in the book with regards to the present.
Here you can access the preprint of what will be part of the Anuario ThinkEPI v. 17 (2023). Hope you enjoy it!
