bibliographic coupling

Dear colleagues,

In some versions of the Web-of-Science the end-of-lines are different from
the version at the University of Amsterdam and this has led to error
messages when using my programs for organizing files (ISI.exe) or for
generating maps of bibliographic coupling (BibCoupl.EXE). I apologize for
these inconveniences. In the current versions (available at ) these bugs are fixed.
The current versions first control for the type of end-of-line characters,
and correct this if necessary.

I hope that the programs work further smoothly. My students are able to work
with them; thus, it should not be too difficult although they remain
pragmatically unsophisticated. Please, feel free to suggest further

With best wishes,


** apologies for cross-postings
