Figure 5.19: Top reference bursts in the 'FourNetSciResearchers' dataset
For temporal studies, it can be useful to aggregate data by year rather than by author, reference, etc. Running 'Data Preparation > Database > ISI > Extract Longitudinal Summary' will output a table which lists metrics for every year mentioned in the dataset. The longitudinal study table contains the volume of documents and references published per year, as well as the total number of references, the number of distinct references, distinct authors, distinct sources, and distinct keywords per year. The results are graphed in Figure 5.20 (the graph was created using Excel).
