Analytical bibliometric study and its challenges

Bibliometric studies are not a recent trend of studies. Bibliometrics are in simple terms metrics of bibliography where the studies are focused on understanding the trend of researches on a particular field of study or diverse field of studies (Hicks, Wouters, Waltman, De Rijcke, & Rafols, 2015). Bibliometrics are statistical analyses of written publications, books, journals or thesis articles and are frequently used in the field of library and information science, including scientometrics (Arsenova, 2013; Leydesdorff, 2015).
