Adult education research between field and rhizome - a bibliometrical analysis of conference programs of ESREA
Keywords:Adult education research, longitudinal study, program analysis, bibliometrics, triennial research conferences of ESREA, comparative research
AbstractAdult education research is frequently an own subject of research. Such research is often focused on the analysis of journals. This paper will instead analyse triennial research conferences of the European Society for the Research on Adults (ESREA) between 1994 and 2013. The research was carried out mainly via a bibliometrical program analysis of conference papers. Results support previous findings in the analysis of adult education research, but a number of differences or blind spots of ESREA and adult education research in general will become visible.
