摘要:

从文献总量、文献类型、成长趋势、关键词、作者、国家与机构等方面,对1900-2012年SSCI收录的73种人文地理期刊的144719条文献记录,进行了较为全面的文献计量分析,包括:构建作者评价指标体系以分析作者对人文地理研究的学术贡献,利用网络图分析各阶段作者、国家与机构之间合作的网络关系等。研究表明:① 百年来,人文地理发文量总体呈快速上升趋势,但占SSCI发文总量的比重却呈下降趋势;② 英美一直引领全球人文地理研究及其发展;③ 人文地理学有明显研究热点主题,包括地方性、迁移、性别、旅游、规划等,研究注重地理与政治的结合,以及对GIS和RS为代表的地理信息技术的采借;研究热点区域集中在英、美两国,尤以其特大城市为重点,中国的部分城市近十年来也受到较多关注;④ 人文地理学作者分布有明显阶段性特征,并形成了以Johnston R J、Thrift N、Sayer A、Jackson P、Harvey D等为中心的学术高产核心作者群。本研究对揭示人文地理学发展的特征和趋势有较好的参考借鉴。

Abstract:

On the basis of 144719 document records from 73 Human Geography journals from SSCI database during 1900-2012, the paper conducted an integrated bibliometric analysis in respect to characteristics of document types, document outputs, keywords, authors, countries and institutions. Meanwhile, an indicator system was established to examine the features and trends of Human Geography development through comprehensive assessment towards authors worldwide. Our analysis focused on the scientific outputs, subject categories, international collaboration and geographic distribution. A multi-criteria assessment system was built to measure the contributions of 387 authors in four periods within 1900-2012. Then network phase analysis supported by Matlab and Netdraw was used to reveal the network relationships among authors, countries and institutions. It was discovered that firstly, the total amount of Human Geography documents published increased rapidly during the last century, but the proportion it held in SSCI dwindled. Secondly, the US and the UK have been playing a leading role in Human Geography research, especially institutions like University of Sheffield, UCL and University of Cambridge. Thirdly, research hotspots of Human Geography were significant in the last century, including placeness, migration, gender, tourism, planning etc., with the combination of geography with politics to be emphasized. The application of geographic information technology represented by GIS and RS aroused wide concern. The hotspot regions emerged mainly in the US and the UK, especially in some megacities. Several Chinese cities have attained incremental concentration over the last decade. In addition, leading scientists varied in different periods of the study of Human Geography, among whom Johnston R J published the largest number of articles. Moreover, a key author club has emerged led by Johnston RJ, Thrift N, Sayer A, Jackson P, Harvey D et al. With the conclusions above, this paper has shown the development characteristics and trends of Human Geography.
