Updated: Bibliometric study to assist research topic selection: a case from Jakarta’s groundwater basin (on overleaf)

A long version of our paper (submitted to RIOjournal as single-media paper) is available on Overleaf (LaTEX)

Bibliometric study to assist research topic selection: a case from Jakarta’s groundwater basin.

The following is the abstract in LaTEX syntax.

This paper is an example to visualize bibliometric data to extract paper’s topics and their citation relation. It is very important to evaluate the number of documents, the intensity of the paper’s topic, and the relationship between papers. The output can be used to pinpoint suitable research topic.

We began with 246 papers, gathered from \href{https://scholar.google.com}{Google Scholar}, \href{https://crossref.org}{Crossref}, and \href{https://scopus.com}{Scopus} database, saved in RIS format. We narrowed them down to only 69 papers with pdf file available online. Open source tools, \href{https://vosviewer.com}{Vosviewer}, \href{https://zotero.org}{Zotero}, and \href{https://papermachines.org}{PaperMachine plug-in}, were used to visualise the existing RIS database.

The following paper gives an illustration that a brief bibliometric analysis could assist a researcher to determine our research path. It gives us a glimpse of research landscape in Jakarta area. Therefore for deeper analysis, we will focus our literature review on groundwater and surface water interactions.

Research interest: Hydrochemistry, multivariate analysis, and R programming My current focus is how to provide the hydrostratigraphy of volcanic aquifers in Bandung area. The research is based on environmental isotope measurement in groundwater and morphometry. My work consists of hydrochemical measurements. I am using multivariate statistical methods to provides more quantitative foundation for the analysis and more insight into the groundwater behaviour.
