WoS_bib_CR_Freq is a small bibliometrics data analysis script that inputs
Web of Science BibTeX article bibliographic records and then counts the
number of times each reference is cited with the BibTex Cited-References field.
Algorithm for WoS_bib_CR_Freq:
1. Input "Full Record and Cited References" WoS BibTex file.
2. Extract out all data within each "Cited-References" field.
3. Extract out only the Journal/Reference Title from result in step 2.
4. Calculate frequency of Journal/Reference Titles and sort.
Compile and use your own WoS BibTex data for this script:
In order to make real use of this script, you will want to collect
your own data from Web of Science. One potential Workflow is to use the
Organization-Enhanced search field and limit to the desired Institution,
document type, and year range. You should then export the records as
Save to Other File Formats > Full Record and Cited References > BibTeX
Web of Science only allows you to export 500 records at a time, so you will
need to repeat this if more records are needed for your data analysis. The
individual BibTeX files can then be combined into one file. I used the
1. Convert the .bib extension to .txt. This can be completed manually or
programmatically. I use the Windows rename command from within Matlab,
just make sure you only apply it to the correct directory! Here is the
!ren *.bib *.txt;
2. Next, you will need to combine each text file into one file. Again, you
can do this manually or programmatically in Matlab (on Windows) as follows:
system('copy/b *.txt combined_file.txt')
