Abstract
Traces the origin and development of informetrics in the field of library and information science. 'Informatrics' is seen as a generic term to denote studies in which quantitative methods are applied. Discusses various applications of informetrics including citation analysis; impact factor; absolescence and ageing studies; bibliographic coupling; co-citation; and measurement of information such as retrieval performance assessment. Outlines recent developments in informetrics and calls for attention to be paid to the quality of future research in the field to ensure its reliability
