The next phases employed citation context analysis. Henry Small has recently called for a resumption of the project of developing a metatheory of citation, which he notes ‘‘must encompass the spectrum of observed behaviors from the most common forms such as ceremonial or perfunctory citation to the less common deviant cases, such as negative citation, selfcitation, and misattribution. The empirical heart of such a theory is the comparison of the cited text with its context of citation in the citing texts’’ 26 BETSY VAN DER VEER MARTENS Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 Step 8 Step 9 Step 10 Step 11 Step 12 Step 13 Initial construction of corpus through use of Institute for Scientific Information databases supplemented by additional information sources Preliminary analysis of all documents (initial reading of entire corpus to identify citation location and correctness of inclusion in corpus) Identification of additional documents for corpus through citation analysis of previously selected documents Preliminary construction of citation function categories through citation context analysis of individual documents Separation of documents into appropriate theory-groups Second analysis of documents and preliminary assignment of citation function categories to documents Citation context analysis of documents in each theory-group Interviews with selected theorists regarding theory usage and citation function typology Modification of citation function categories Analysis of citation anomalies Development of codebook for assignment of citation functions Final assignment of citation functions to entire corpus Final development of citation function typology Fig.

Thus, certain theory functions may best be appreciated by observers over time rather than by the contemporary theorists themselves. ’’ This meta-category includes 44 percent of all citations in the corpus. Much previous emphasis on the ‘‘social turn’’ in citation analysis, including ‘‘referencing as persuasion’’ (Gilbert, 1977), ‘‘captation’’ (Latour, 1987), and the ‘‘rhetoric-first model’’ (Cozzens, 1989), has been on the subjective rather than the objective side of these citations. Lately, however, there has been a 36 BETSY VAN DER VEER MARTENS renewed appreciation of citations as ‘‘knowledge claims’’ (Budd, 1999).
