Abstract:The Information Science & Library Science (IS-LS) category in Journal Citation Report (JCR) has been criticized for its collocation of library and information science (LIS) and management information systems (MIS) within one single category, which has resulted in numerous research evaluation problems. In this poster, we present an analysis based on four leading journals, one representing MIS and three representing LIS. Papers and citation data of the journals between 2005 and 2014 were analyzed to reveal the similarities and differences in the distributions of cited subjects and author affiliations of the four journals. The results show observable differences among the subject fields and the possible negative consequences of the inappropriate collocation was discussed for future research evaluation and development.
