CITAN: CITation ANalysis toolpack
CITAN is a library of functions useful in - but not
limited to - quantitative research in the field of
scientometrics. It contains various tools for preprocessing
bibliographic data retrieved e.g. from Elsevier's SciVerse
Scopus and calculating bibliometric impact of individuals.
Also, many functions dealing with Pareto-Type II (GPD) and
Discretized Pareto-Type II statistical models are included
(e.g. Zhang-Stephens and MLE estimators, goodness-of-fit and
two-sample tests, confidence intervals for the theoretical
Hirsch index etc.). They may be used to describe and analyze
many phenomena encountered in the social sciences.
