Abstract

John Gore’s seminal 1984 paper on gel dosimetry spawned a vibrant research fieldranging from fundamental science through to clinical applications. A preliminary bibliometricstudy was undertaken of the gel dosimetry family of publications inspired by, and resulting from,Gore’s original 1984 paper to determine active growth areas, research trends and hot topics fromGore’s paper up to and including 2016. Themes and trends of the gel dosimetry research fieldwere bibliometrically explored by way of co-occurrence term maps using the titles and abstractstext corpora from the Web of Science database for all relevant papers from 1984 to 2016.Visualisation of similarities was used by way of the VOSviewer visualisation tool to generatecluster maps of gel dosimetry knowledge domains and the associated citation impact of topicswithin the domains. Heat maps were then generated to assist in the understanding of activegrowth areas, research trends, and emerging and hot topics in gel dosimetry.
