English abstract

When transmitting scientific knowledge, authors weave a web of intellectual affinities through the works they cite that portrays trends and developments in research in their discipline. In the present article, we aim to establish an intellectual panorama of Terminology in which we depict the outstanding developments in research and the most influential authors. To do so, we analyze periodical publications that have appeared over a wide period of time. Author Citation Analysis (ACA) and the visual representation of the relationships between authors through social networks (specifically, pathfinder networks) is based on the premise that links are necessarily established between the authors cited in any specific work so that greater frequency of co-ocurrence indicates a stronger affinity between authors. Among other findings, our results show that the group of most frequently cited authors represents less than 1% of the total and that only 12% of authors have published three or more articles. Moreover, we can confirm that research in Terminology is developing in three clearly differentiated directions: theoretical foundations, Natural Language Processing and Socioterminology.&

French abstract

Lorsqu’ils transmettent des connaissances, les auteurs tissent souvent un réseau d’affinités intellectuelles par le biais des travaux qu’ils citent. Ce réseau offre un portrait des grands courants et de l’évolution de leur discipline. Le présent article a pour but de dresser un panorama du domaine de la terminologie en insistant sur ses développements et ses auteurs les plus influents. Pour ce faire, nous nous fondons sur les articles parus dans les périodiques du domaine, sur une période assez longue. L’analyse des citations et la représentation visuelle des relations entre les auteurs par le biais des réseaux sociaux postule que les citations établissent des liens entre les auteurs. Ainsi plus leur fréquence est élevée, plus les affinités entre ces auteurs seront fortes. Notre étude montre par ailleurs que le groupe des auteurs les plus cités représente moins de 1 % du nombre total et que seulement 12 % des auteurs ont publié trois articles ou plus. Enfin, cet article confirme que la terminologie, en tant que champ de recherche, se développe selon trois orientations bien distinctes : les fondements théoriques, le traitement des langues naturelles et la socioterminologie.
