Abstract

Using citation analysis we investigated the presence of S. R. Ranganathan's work in the modern scientific literature. We found that during the past twenty two years nearly 400 papers cite at least one piece of Ranganathan's work, significantly more than in the preceding forty years. There is much evidence for a sustainable pervasion of modern science by Ranganathan's work and ideas.
