English abstract

Despite its long existence and international acceptance, network theory and analysis is a practically unknown approach in Documentation, both theoretically and methodologically speaking. Fortunately, this trend is changing, inasmuch as network theory and analysis may mean a quantitative and qualitative leap forward in the representation and analysis of the structure of all types of scientific domains, whether geographic, thematic or institutional. The extraordinary advances that have taken place in recent years in the study and analysis of complex networks have been made possible by a number of parallel developments. First of all, with computerized data acquisition and handling, large databases can bemanaged, leading to the emergence of different real network topologies. Secondly, the increase in computing power has made it possible to explore networks with millions of nodes. Thirdly, there is the slow but sure breakdown of boundaries between disciplines. This can be seen by researchers because of their ability to access and use databases that facilitate an understanding of the generic properties of complex networks.

Spanish abstract

La teoría de redes y el análisis estructural son poco conocidos en nuestra área, tanto en el campo teórico, como metodológico. El actual período de revolución en el análisis de redes que también afecta a la biblioteconomía y documentación debe cambiar este hecho, ya que su aplicación implica un salto cuantitativo y cualitativo en la representación y el análisis de la estructura de todo tipo de dominios científicos, ya sean geográficos, temáticos, institucionales e incluso individuales. Este trabajo tiene por objeto la caracterización de los distintos tipos de redes del mundo real según su tipo y tamaño, estableciendo un primer criterio para la determinación de redes con posible aplicación en los estudios de biblioteconomía y documentación. En segundo lugar, un análisis de los diversos tipos de redes, a través de las teorías que estudian el comportamiento y la dinámica estructurales, y la influencia de los trabajos de nuestra área para el establecimiento de la explicación más probable para el crecimiento y la evolución de las redes reales.
