(Submission #76)


This paper presents the results of an original research project. The study uses a population of 80 faculty members from two library and information science (LIS) schools to examine the differences between Scopus and WoS in mapping the faculties' intellectual impact, focusing on authors, universities, journals, disciplines, and countries that cite them. Given that WoS has been and continues to be the standard data source for a major portion of citation-based information visualization and mapping knowledge domains research, the study also examines the effects and/or necessity and value of using Scopus as an additional citation data source in such research areas.
