Some Publication Trends In Spectroscopic Literature

Volume 12, Number 5 (Oct. 1958) Page 133-136

Bryan, Ford R.

Some simple statistics are derived from the ten-year bibliography of spectroscopic literature compiled by the Bell Telephone Laboratories and published in APPLIED SPECTROSCOPY. The numbers of indexed articles are tabulated according to subject, year, and periodical in order to observe publication trends over the period including 1948 through 1957. Among the observations is strong evidence of the desirability of organized technical literature searching to obtain adequate coverage of the literature of spectroscopy.
