0 Reviews
Is an extremely clear and thorough examination of the field of decision support systems ... Using bibliometric data bases translated into author cocitation matrices and analysed using multivariate techniques such as factor analysis, multidimensional scaling and cluster analysis, the field is portrayed with both excellent specific detail and informative generality ... also impressive at several levels apart from its analytic thoroughness. The author has taken great care to relate his discussion to a general understanding of what a discipline or field of research is ... a remarkable book and worthwhile reading by anyone with an interest in decision support systems. For that matter, anyone interested in studying disciplinary evolution or coherence would benefit from this work.
