## load scientometrics data set
# data(scientometrics_text)

## Convert text data into a bibliographic data frame
# scient_df <- convert2df(scientometrics_text, dbsource="isi", format="plaintext")

## Perform a bibliometric analysis of the bibliographic data frame  
# results <- biblioAnalysis(scient_df)

## summarize results
# summary(results, k=10, pause=FALSE)

## plot results
# plot(results, k=10, pause=FALSE)
