Abstract

A description is given of a survey of members of the American College of Medical Informatics (ACMI), to determine their assessments of the literature of Medical Informatics and to delineate the content and scope of the field. Comparison of subjective literature assessments with objective bibliometric measures indicates that the latter cannot substitute for the former.
