Abstract
Purpose This paper is exploring research methods used in Library and Information Science (LIS) during the last four decades. Our goal is to compile a annotated bibliography of seminal works of the discipline used in different countries and social contexts. Design/methodology/approach When comparing areas and types of research, different publication patterns are taken into account. As we can see, data indicators and types of studies carried out on scientific activity contribute very little when evaluating the real response potential to identified problems. Therefore, among other things, LIS needs new methodological developments, which should combine qualitative and quantitative approaches and allow a better understanding of the nature and characteristics of science in different countries. Findings The conclusion is that LIS emerges strictly linked to descriptive methodologies, channeled to meet the challenges of professional practice through empirical strategies of a professional nature, which manifests itself the preponderance of a professional paradigm that turns out to be an indicator of poor scientific discipline development. Research limitations/implications This undoubtedly reflects the reality of Anglo-Saxon countries, reproduced in most of the recognized journals of the field; this issue, plus, the chosen instruments for data collection certainly slant the results. Originality/value The development of taxonomies in the discipline can't be left aside from the accepted by the rest of the scientific community, at least if LIS desires to be integrated and recognized as a scientific discipline.
