English abstract

The CTBTO Library performed a comprehensive analysis of the CTBTO scientific communication, by using bibliometric and scientometric techniques, through key network visualizations representing contribution to the global scientific community during the 25 years of its creation. In the context of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) verification system, the analysis incorporated the content review of more than 3,000 scientific publications, including but not limited to papers, conference proceedings, books, book chapters, expert reports, and dissertations (from 1998-2021) where CTBTO Preparatory Commission and the Treaty were mentioned by experts from different backgrounds and institutions that interacted and contributed with innovative solutions to improve the verification regime. In this framework, the visualizations offer an innovative approach to represent the complexity of this universe; characterizing all the connections between experts, subjects of interest in common, institutions, and countries. The analysis was accomplished using the following software: a) Mendeley (free software); b) VoSviewer (open source). The role of the metadata was crucial, especially for the standardization of author, keywords, institutions, and countries. These representations expressed the network between clusters as well as co-occurrence, and relatedness based on the frequency of publications.
