Abstract

The Classification Literature Automated Search Service, an annual bibliography based on citation of one or more of a set of around 80 book or journal publications, ran from 1972 to 2012. We analyze here the years 1994 to 2012. The Classification Society’s Service, as it was termed, was produced by the Classification Society. In earlier decades it was distributed as a diskette or CD with the Journal of Classification. Among our findings are the following: an enormous increase in scholarly production in this area post approximately 2000; and another big increase in quantity of publications from approximately 2004. The over 93,000 bibliographic records used is the basis for determining the research disciplines that we analyze. We make all this data available for download, formatted in text and in XML, with an accompanying Apache Lucene/Solr search interface.
