Abstract [en]

This article studies citation practices in the arts andhumanities from a theoretical and conceptual viewpoint,drawing on studies from fields like linguistics, history,library & information science, and the sociology of science.The use of references in the humanities is discussedin connection with the growing interest in thepossibilities of applying citation analysis to humanisticdisciplines. The study shows how the use of referenceswithin the humanities is connected to concepts of originality,to intellectual organization, and to searching andwriting. Finally, it is acknowledged that the use of referencesis connected to stylistic, epistemological, andorganizational differences, and these differences mustbe taken into account when applying citation analysis tohumanistic disciplines.
