1González-Alcaide, G. ; Castelló-Cogollos, L. ; Navarro-Molina, C. ; Aleixandre-Benavent, R. ; Valderrama-Zurián, J.C.: Library and information science research areas : analysis of journal articles in LISA.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 59(2008) no.1, S.150-154.
Abstract: The main fields of research in Library Science and Documentation are identified by quantifying the frequency of appearance and the analysis of co-occurrence of the descriptors assigned to 11,273 indexed works in the Library and Information Science Abstracts (LISA) database for the 2004-2005 period. The analysis made has enabled three major core research areas to be identified: World Wide Web, Libraries and Education. There are a further 12 areas of research with specific development, one connected with the library sphere and another 11 connected with the World Wide Web and Internet: Networks, Computer Security, Information technologies, Electronic Resources, Electronic Publications, Bibliometrics, Electronic Commerce, Computer applications, Medicine, Searches and Online Information retrieval.

2Gil-Leiva, I. ; Alonso-Arroyo, A.: Keywords given by authors of scientific articles in database descriptors.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 58(2007) no.8, S.1175-1187.
Abstract: In this article, the authors analyze the keywords given by authors of scientific articles and the descriptors assigned to the articles to ascertain the presence of the keywords in the descriptors. Six-hundred forty INSPEC (Information Service for Physics, Engineering, and Computing), CAB (Current Agriculture Bibliography) abstracts, ISTA (Information Science and Technology Abstracts), and LISA (Library and Information Science Abstracts) database records were consulted. After detailed comparisons, it was found that keywords provided by authors have an important presence in the database descriptors studied; nearly 25% of all the keywords appeared in exactly the same form as descriptors, with another 21% though normalized, still detected in the descriptors. This means that almost 46% of keywords appear in the descriptors, either as such or after normalization. Elsewhere, three distinct indexing policies appear, one represented by INSPEC and LISA (indexers seem to have freedom to assign the descriptors they deem necessary); another is represented by CAB (no record has fewer than four descriptors and, in general, a large number of descriptors is employed). In contrast, in ISTA, a certain institutional code exists towards economy in indexing because 84% of records contain only four descriptors.

3Montesi, M. ; Mackenzie Owen, J.: Revision of author abstracts : how it is carried out by LISA editors.
In: Aslib proceedings. 59(2007) no.1, S.26-45.
Abstract: Purpose - The literature on abstracts recommends the revision of author supplied abstracts before their inclusion in database collections. However, little guidance is given on how to carry out such revision, and few studies exist on this topic. The purpose of this research paper is to first survey 187 bibliographic databases to ascertain how many did revise abstracts, and then study the practical amendments made by one of these, i.e. LISA (Library and Information Science Abstracts). Design/methodology/approach - Database policies were established by e-mail or through alternative sources, with 136 databases out of 187 exhaustively documented. Differences between 100 author-supplied abstracts and the corresponding 100 LISA amended abstracts were classified into sentence-level and beyond sentence-level categories, and then as additions, deletions and rephrasing of text. Findings - Revision of author abstracts was carried out by 66 databases, but in just 32 cases did it imply more than spelling, shortening of length and formula representation. In LISA, amendments were often non-systematic and inconsistent, but still pointed to significant aspects which were discussed. Originality/value - Amendments made by LISA editors are important in multi- and inter-disciplinary research, since they tend to clarify certain aspects such as terminology, and suggest that abstracts should not always be considered as substitutes for the original document. From this point-of-view, the revision of abstracts can be considered as an important factor in enhancing a database's quality.

7Kumar, T.V.R. ; Parameswaran, M.: Chain indexing and LISA.
In: Knowledge organization. 25(1998) nos.1/2, S.13-15.
Abstract: Ranaganathan's chain indexing technique is devised as a complementary and supplementary tool to classification schemes. However, due to the efficiency and economy, this technique can effectively be made use of in deriving alphabetical subject indexes for any indexing/abstracting services. The authors have made a close analysis of LISA to elucidate the extent of the impact of chain indexing in it. Some of the problems found in the application of chain procedure in alphabetical subject indexing are identified and the solution found in LISA has been explained

8Iivonen, M. ; Kivimäki, K.: Common entities and missing properties : similarities and differences in the indexing of concepts.
In: Knowledge organization. 25(1998) no.3, S.90-102.
Abstract: The selection and representation of concepts in indexing of the same documents in 2 databases of library and information studies are considered. the authors compare the indexing of 49 documents in KINF and LISA. They focus on the types of concepts presented in indexing, the degree of concept consistency in indexing, and similarities and differences in the indexing of concepts. The largest group of indexed concepts in both databases was the category of entities while concepts belonging to the category of properties were almost missing in both databases. The second largest group of indexed concepts in KINF was the category of activities and in LISA the category of dimensions. Although the concept consistency between KINF and LISA remained rather low and was only 34%, there were approximately 2,2 concepts per document which were indexed from the same documents in both databses. These common concepts belonged mostly to the category of entities

10Jascó, P.: Library and Information Science Abstracts.
In: Link-up. 14(1997) no.2, S.3,39.
Abstract: Reviews the CD-ROM and online database version of the abstracting and indexing service LISA. Highlights a few limitations of content of the records, and traces recent changes. The CD-ROM version offers a powerful, advanced version of Bowker search software. The online version is available on Dialog, but some of its power search features are not available on LISA. The CD-ROM is preferable to the online version because of its better browsing and display options and also because, unusually, it was more current
11Nicholas, D.: LISA Plus on CD-ROM : version 4.
In: Journal of librarianship and information science. 29(1997) no.3, A.161-162.
Abstract: Presents a brief, critical review of LISA PLaus: the CD-ROM database version of LISA and which includes the database of Current Research in Library and Information Science (CRLIS). The review covers the DOS version only, as it appeared in the Summer 1996 CD-ROM, noting that the Windows version was planned for the future. Points to the way LISA has found its mark, if not its fortune, in LISA Plus and notes its strengths, including: ideal suitability for current awareness in library and information science (LIS); massive and convenient consolidation of the published LIS literature; and massive increase in coverage from 7.900 abstracts in 1993 to over 12.000 currently. Criticizes certain features of LISA Plus, notably: the OPTI-Ware search interface; the combination of 2 databases (LISA and CRLIS) in a single, searchable database; and certain unexpected effects caused by the building of the Subject and Free Text indexes. Points particularly to great lack of consistency in the indexes and the indexing (faults that were fully rectified by a complete overhaul of the data in Summer 1996). Notes that LISA Plus is the first port of call for both information researchers and information science students. The Windows version of LISA Plus was launched in Spring 1997

12Sen, B.K.: Research articles in LISA Plus : problems of identification.
In: Malaysian journal of library and information science. 2(1997) no.1, S.97-106.
Abstract: Reports results of a study to determine how easy and quickly research articles in library and information science could be retrieved from the LISA Plus CD-ROM database. Results show that the search with the descriptor 'research' retrieves all types of articles and it is necessary to read through every abstract to locate the research articles. The introductory sentence of a substantial number of abstracts hinder the process of identification since the sentence provides such information as the conference where the paper was presented, the special issue or the section of a periodical where the article is located; or obvious background information. Suggests measures whereby research articles can be identified easily and rapidly

16Sen, B.K.: ¬An inquiry into the information retrieval efficiency of LISA PLUS database.
In: Malaysian journal of libarry and information science. 1(1996) no.1, S.67-84.
Abstract: Reports results of a study to compare the efficiency of the computerized searching of LISA Plus and Currents Research in Library and Information Science (CRLIS) with manual searching of the printed version of LISA. The study focused on articles covering the library and information science profession (LIS), published in Asian library and information science periodicals. The first stage was to identify Asian LIS periodicals using the Ulrich's Plus CD-ROM database. Computerized searching involved 2 methods; straightforward creation of sets for every periodical title; and browsing of brief citations of abstracts of all articles identified as being on the library profession published in the 1993 LISA. The manual searching involved browsing section 2.0 profession for all 11 issues of the printed LISA. Examines the reasons why computeroized searches took more time and retrieved less number of items. Suggests measures whereby the efficiency of computerized searches can be increased and concludes that to ensure comprehensive recall of relevant items, a combination of manual and computerized search is indispensible
17Hood, W. ; Wilson, C.S.: Indexing terms in the LISA database on CD-ROM.
In: Information processing and management. 30(1994) no.3, S.327-342.
Abstract: This paper summarizes the findings of a recent study on the indexing practices used in the LISA database. The indexing terms (DE), the date each record was added to the file(DA), the accession number (AN), and the classification code (CC) of each record were extracted from the complete CD-ROM database. Adjustments to standardize the DE terms were made, and the adjusted data set was analyzed for average number of headings per record per DA year, the rank frequency and rank size distribution of DE classes, and the frequency distribution of the number of DEs per record per DA. The results show that a large number of headings are used once or twice over the whole database. The years in which DE terms first appeared was analyzed. A comparison of the use ot a particular classification code with the DE terms in each record was also undertaken. There was a strong but not total match between the CCs and DEs used. Some attention is given to the chain indexing procedure used by LISA to account for the pattern of DE usage. The concluding section looks at scope for further research on LISA and other databases
18Moore, N.L.: LISA PLUS by Bowker-Saur : new developments in the PLUS user interface.
In: Electronic library. 12(1994) no.4, S.248-249.
Abstract: An earlier article compared the LISA CD-ROM database in its original form, when produced by SilverPlatter Information Inc., and its current form, as LISA PLUS, since LISA's acquisition by Bowker-Saur in 1990 (Electronic library 12(1994) no.1, S.5-9). The article compared the 2 databases with regard to the user interface software (SilverPlatter and Bowker Plus) particularly from the viewpoint of functionality and ease of use. The version of LISA PLUS, used in the study, was at an intermediate stage of development and because of this, errors crept into the study and some of the strenghts of LISA PLUS were missed. This short communication corrects these errors and points to improvements planned for the future including: cleaning up of the database; and loading of the LISA thesaurus on the database

In: Electronic Library. 12(1994) no.1, S.5-10.
Abstract: LISA will no longer be produced by SilverPlatter; it is being replaced by Bowker-Saur's LISA Plus (Online Computer Systems). The two products are compared with regards to the user interface software, particularly from the aspects of functionality and ease of use. It is concluded that, from this viewpoint, the change may not be an entirely welcome one
