Sparking Synergies: Bringing Research and Practice Together @ ASIST '05 (ASIS&T 2005)
Westin Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina, October 28 - November 2, 2005


This poster examines the early history of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN)research as represented in the published literature, 1980-1991, using three complementary bibliometric approaches. These include Research Front Specialty cluster string mapping, document cocitation mapping, and document citation network analysis using Garfield's HistCite software. Graphics include overviews of the timeline of ANN research and maps and cluster networks. Discussion focuses on how complementary bibliometric methods can contribute to historical studies
