Abstract: 

The present research aimed to analyze co-authorship and direct citation networks of Derek de Solla Price medalists in informetrics. This applied research study was conducted using scientometric and social network analysis indicators. The population of the study was all scholarly output of 27 Price medalists (3633 documents) which indexed in the Web of Science (WoS) by the time of data gathering for the present study. The UCINET software was employed for social networks’ visualization. Results of the study revealed that Shubert, Glanzel, and Braun had the highest degree of centrality and were the most active and visible informaticians with the highest extent of collaboration. On the other hand, the highest betweenness centrality was related to Garfield, Glanzel, and Leydesdorff who played the important role in connecting the various loops and increasing the network’s cohesion and connectedness. The analysis of direct citation network showed that the most central and influential informaticians were Leydesdorff, Thelwall, Glanzel, Rousseau, and Schubert. They have considerable social power in order to influence the social network and their absence leads to decrease network’s cohesion and increase its fragmentation. This research drew a clear portrait of research collaboration and citation interaction of elite informaticians for the research community.
