The use of the content analysis method in library and information science research is discussed, and the method illustrated by a content analysis of Australian library research articles published over the ten-year period 1985-1994 in The Australian Library Journal and Australian Academic & Research Libraries. The analysis is made using categories devised by two Finnish researchers, Jiirvelin and Vakkari, for analysing articles in 37 core library and information science journals published in 1985.
