Scientometric Study of the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering 1980-2010
In this paper a scientometric study on the IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering 1980-2010 is presented. Using the full records from the Thomson Reuters (ISI) Web of Science (WoS), the journal’s bibliometric measures are examined in terms of growth of literature, authorship characteristics, country of origin, distribution of articles’ citations and references, and finally graph network of the research collaborations. A keyword occurrence analysis was carried out on the articles’ title and the results used to create TagClouds showing perceptually their research importance. Furthermore, these TagClouds were created for the full 3 decades, shorter 5-year periods and most recent years, providing insights into potential research trends and help to relate them to major historic contributions in software engineering.
