Food Systems Citation Analysis: Trends in an Emerging Interdisciplinary Field

Megan M Kocher, Julia Kelly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Food systems is an emerging field that draws researchers from food science, economics, nutrition, agronomy, and public health. To gain a better perspective on food systems literature, a citation analysis was performed on four journals covering the topic of food systems – a relatively new discipline in academia. Analyses included the types of works cited, the most commonly-cited journals in this discipline, age of materials cited, geographic location of authors, and types of data cited. The data collected aided the librarians who were tasked with supporting this new area of research and will be used to support the research by assisting students and building appropriate collections.
