Functions of Uni- and Multi-citations: Implications for Weighted Citation Analysis

processed in a random order. Each of the in-text citations were classified into one of the above five function categories by two coders, independently. Both coders are second-year students of the Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) program. The two coders agreed completely on 48% of the in-text citations. For another 37%, they agreed that the citations were either perfunctory or reviewed but did not agree on which of these two functions was more appropriate. In other words, if we consider both perfunctory and reviewed citations as a single category labeled

A Structural and Grammatical Analysis of the Estonian Constitution

Abstract

The authors propose a novel quantitative method to analyse the structure of legal texts. The method enables to determine grammatical similarity between legal texts. The authors use the external theory of fundamental rights to separate the text of fundamental rights of the Estonian Constitution into two categories of norms: constitutional rights and restrictions. Grammatical similarity between constitutional rights, restrictions and selected legal acts and case law is measured. The layer of special norms renders the best grammatical similarity with the text of fundamental rights. The same grammatical similarity tests can be replicated to cover other jurisdictions in the future. The research is experimental, but the authors believe that the method can be utilised in fields of computational linguistics and legal text mining, but also in research where legal text structures are analysed for various purposes.

Canons and Contemporary Danish Literature

Abstract

This article deals with recent Danish literature in the light of the discussion about canons occasioned by the publication of the two ministerial canons: Undervisningskanon (Educational Canon, 2004) and Kulturkanon (Cultural Canon, 2006). The article argues that recent Danish literature challenges traditional work categories and the concept of the author on which the two canons are based, and discusses which works and texts in recent Danish literature ought to belong to a future canon.
