The Relevance of Citations: a case of study of stratospheric ozone monitoring

Abstract [en]

A contextual citation analysis was performed on a sample of 68 articles citing either or both of two key papers from the research field of stratospheric ozone monitoring. The theoretical approach of each article was assessed as either chemical or dynamical, or was left unspecified. Functions of citations to the two key papers were classified into 13 categories, seen to express various kinds of relevance relationships. Topical relatedness between cited and citing articles was studied in terms of number of shared descriptors and the union overlap measure. A certain theory~dependence, in the sense of a relatively high degree of correspondence between the theoretical approach of citing and cited articles, was observed in the material. The correlation between topical relatedness and citation relationships appeared to be weak.
