Abstract

This lecture will give an introduction into the emergence of computer-and web-based bibliographic databases such as the web of science or scopus. Why they have been created? What was the intention? How they are used today? Why it is important to understand the current expert controversy on bibliometric indicators? How this affects librarians and information specialists?
