Temas y métodos de investigación en Ciencia de la Información, 2000-2019. Revisión bibliográfica

Palabras clave: Revisión sistemática, Ciencia de la Información, Información y Documentación, Métodos de investigación, Técnicas de investigación, Temas de investigación, Artículo de revisión

Resumen

Se realiza una revisión sistemática de bibliografía que analiza los temas de investigación y los métodos y técnicas utilizados en la Ciencia de la Información que han sido recogidos en revisiones y estudios publicados entre 2000 y 2019. Se han revisado 36 trabajos. Según los resultados obtenidos no hay un consenso sobre los temas nucleares de la disciplina, ya que éstos evolucionan y cambian dinámicamente en relación con otras disciplinas y con los contextos sociales y culturales dominantes. En relación con los métodos y técnicas de investigación, puede afirmase que en su mayoría han sido adoptados del campo de las ciencias sociales, a los que hay que añadir los métodos numéricos, especialmente en las áreas de bibliometría e informetría.
