Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A schism between the types of methodologies used in the study of political science has been developing for several decades. This article discusses both historical and contemporary controversies swirling around the concept. Through the use of vocabulary analysis, methodological classification, and cited reference review, the article explores the magnitude of this change and discusses the impact of the change on libraries and librarians interested in keeping up with current journal literature in the field of political science.
