Data for: Are fieldwork studies being relegated to second place in conservation science?
This dataset has been used for the analysis presented in the paper C.A. Ríos-Saldaña, M. Delibes-Mateos, C. Ferreira, Are fieldwork studies being relegated to second place in conservation science?, Glob. Ecol. Conserv. 14 (2018) e00389. Those data results from searching, in Thomson Scientific’s Web of Knowledge database, the “Biodiversity and Conservation” subject heading line and restrict the search to results since 1980. Using these search term, we downloaded the publication information, i.e., title, abstract, author, publication year, source, volume, issue, pages, as a tab-delimited text file, suitable for further processing. They have been enriched with values coming from Scholar Google (cites), Journal Citation Reports (Impact factor, quartile), and the own analysis, that consisted of reading and screening each article to determine it was based on fieldwork (i.e. papers that reported new observational and/orfield investigations) or not (for more details see Ríos-Saldaña et al. 2018).
