Abstract:This short paper represents an initial effort to connect the emergence theory literature with the bibliometric, informetric, and scientometic literatures. It begins with a prominent definition of emergence, and then connects each of the components of this definition with the relevant insights about the development of new scientific and technical concepts or research specialties. Finally, it concludes with a discussion of the relationship between these two distinct areas of scholarly inquiry and the need for further exploration of this intersection.
