The use of keywords in archaeornithology literature
A keyword reflects the subject matter of a journal article that is chosen by its author(s). The selection of keywords by researchers in their works is crucial to disseminating knowledge, increasing publication citations, and advancing a science career. We examined keywords chosen in the titles and keyword sections of the archaeornithology literature generated by past meetings of the Bird Working Group (BWG), International Council for Archaeozoology. We report our results to (1) identify keywords that have been shared across authors, (2) make suggestions to improve showcasing researchers' works, and (3) heighten the importance of keyword choice. Additionally, we propose that the BWG and its members consider recommending a keyword scheme for use in future publications.
