A Bibliometric Analysis of Glottometrics

A Bibliometric Analysis of Glottometrics


Yanni Lin, Haitao Liu

Abstract: Glottometrics, one of the most authoritative journals in quantitative linguistics, has
celebrated its 17th anniversary in 2017. In this paper, we conduct a bibliometric study of this journal.
By statistical analysis of the basic data in all the 37 volumes published so far (2001-2017), we explore
the publication profile, contributors, research content, and citations based on the self-built library and
corpora. Results provide a glimpse of development and research status of quantitative linguistics.
Suggestions of further improvements for this journal are also proposed.
