TL;DR: According to a bibliometric and network analysis, there is a small number of authors who can be considered to be the most productive and who publish regularly, and a large number of transient ones.
Abstract: There has been an increase in research published on information behavior in recent years, and this has been accompanied by an increase in its diversity and interaction with other fields, particularly information retrieval. The aims of this study are to determine which researchers have contributed to producing the current body of knowledge on this subject, and to describe its intellectual basis. A bibliometric and network analysis was applied to authorship and co-authorship as well as citation and co-citation. According to these analyses, there is a small number of authors who can be considered to be the most productive and who publish regularly, and a large number of transient ones. Other findings reveal a marked predominance of theoretical works, some examples of qualitative methodology that originate in other areas of social science, and a high incidence of research focused on the user interaction with information retrieval systems and the information behavior of doctors.

TL;DR: The article describes how this method has been applied to the study of information behaviour, shows a practical application and discusses the professional and methodological implications.
Abstract: The field of information behaviour research is dominated by a constructivist vision focused on the individual as a generator of knowledge. Recently, a group of researchers have increased the criticism of this approach and advocate a social turn. From this point of view, methods such as discourse analysis are used to try to learn from the language of users how they generate and share knowledge in the social context. Other methods that could contribute to a better understanding of this aspect include social network analysis. The article describes how this method has been applied to the study of information behaviour, shows a practical application and discusses the professional and methodological implications.

TL;DR: It is concluded that in Spain there has not yet been a change in the orientation towards a user-oriented model in the field of information needs and uses in the period 1990–2004.

TL;DR: Although this methodology is suitable for the study of an individual's interaction with information from that individual's own point of view, documentation of the procedures involved is often deficient.

TL;DR: Las tres metodologias ofrecen un procedimiento de gran valor para conocer al usuario en ese medio, definiendo el objeto de estudio a partir of diversos aspectos of the interaccion of this usuarios with the informacion.
Abstract: Content analysis, the constructivist version of grounded theory and discourse analysis of discursive psychology are analyzed in the context of research on how users generate and share information on social media. For each of the three designs, the research question, methods of data analysis and research output are studied. This combination of three methodologies is valuable to gain knowledge about the user in that environment, defining the object of study from various aspects of user interaction with information.

TL;DR: The present work discusses the evolution and changes over the time of the use of VR in the main areas of application with an emphasis on the future expected VR’s capacities, increases and challenges.
Abstract: The recent appearance of low cost Virtual Reality (VR) technologies – like the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive and the Sony PlayStation VR – and Mixed Reality Interfaces (MRITF) – like the Hololens – is attracting the attention of users and researchers suggesting it may be the next largest stepping stone in technological innovation. However, the history of VR technology is longer than it may seem: the concept of VR was formulated in the 1960s and the first commercial VR tools appeared in the late 1980s. For this reason, during the last twentyyears, hundreds of researchers explored the processes, effects and applications of this technology producing thousands of scientific papers. What is the outcome of this significant research work? This paper wants to provide an answer to this question by exploring, using advanced scientometric techniques, the existing research corpus in the field. We collected all the existent articles about VR in the Web of Science Core Collection scientific database, and the resultant dataset contained 21,667 records for VR and 9,944 for AR. The bibliographic record contained various fields, such as author, title, abstract, country, and all the references (needed for the citation analysis). The network and cluster analysis of the literature showed a composite panorama characterized by evolutions over the time. Indeed, whether until five years ago, the main publication media on VR concerned both conference proceeding and journals, more recently journals constitute the main medium. Similarly, if at first computer science was the leading research field, nowadays clinical areas increased, as well as the number of countries involved in virtual reality research. The present work discusses the evolution of the use of virtual reality in the main areas of application with an emphasis on the future expected virtual reality’s capacities, increases and challenges. We conclude considering the disruptive contribution that VR/AR/MRITF will be able to get in scientific fields, as well in human communication and interaction, as already happened with the advent of mobile phones by increasing the use and the development of scientific applications (e.g. in clinical areas) and by modifying the social communication and interaction among people.
