¿Por qué se crean nuevas revistas?: análisis internacional de títulos de Información y Documentación (2013-2018)

Palabras clave: Información y Documentación, Creación de revistas científicas, Editores, Evaluación, Gestión editorial, Biblioteconomía, Comunicación académica, Revistas científicas, Acceso abierto

Resumen

Se analiza la creación o cambios de título de las revistas científicas del área de Información y Documentación (ID) en el periodo de 2013-2018. A partir de un total de 62 revistas identificadas a través de ISSN Portal y Ulrichsweb se describen: aspectos característicos como países, idiomas, tipos de editor y modelo de acceso; la difusión en bases de datos bibliográficas, de citas o directorios de revistas; la pervivencia y el volumen de producción de artículos; número de citas anual de los artículos en Google Scholar; alcance temático que declaran los editores; y finalmente, la justificación que los editores exponen en el cambio de título o en la creación de una nueva revista. Como conclusiones principales respecto a los títulos de nueva creación, destaca el protagonismo de los editores académicos de sistemas universitarios nacionales en expansión y de los títulos en acceso abierto. En general las nuevas publicaciones generan pocos artículos por año, tienen poca presencia en bases de datos y reciben pocas citas. Los cambios de títulos se detectan sólo en editoriales comerciales. En ambos casos predominan las revistas de alcance temático general y un número importante de revistas no justifica su creación o el cambio de título.
