Abstract

With the newly released impact factor from Thomson Reuters, we look at the first two years of the journal Theranostics under the scope of a new bibliometric designed for the analysis of emerging specialties and also for journals with a multidisciplinary approach. With this method, we are able to look at characteristics of an interdisciplinary field or a single journal subject area, and also, the bibliographic trends of their authors. We use this tool to examine authors from the journal Theranostics and compare them to similar authors in the field of theranostics, or theranosticians. Our document and co-citation analysis examines the growth and overlap of established knowledge networks with the incorporation of fields, topics, and disciplines; the quantification can also reflect the intellectual activity in combining leading edge developments in solidly grounded specialties. The quantification of junior authorship aims to gauge the promotion of fresh ideas and scientific development in the community, while productivity of overall authors is measured by citation analysis.
