  • Collaborators:
    Amanda Favia

Bioethics is a highly interdisciplinary field, drawing together philosophers, theologians, physicians, nurses, public health professionals, policymakers, and more. This work examines disciplinarity in the field literature using bibliometric techinques. This citation analysis reveals which educational backgrounds are most prominent in the literature, as well as patterns of scholarly communication—for example, are philosophers more likely to cite other philosophers rather than physicians (and vice versa) and, if so, to what degree?
