ANALYSIS OF BIBLIOGRAPHIC RECORDS RELATED TO VIOLENCE AT SPORTING EVENTS
ABSTRACT This article is based on a preliminary research conducted at the Ministry of Interior of the Republic of Slovenia (MIRS) and its bodies in 2011. Using complex queries on violence and hooliganism at sporting events, bibliographic data from COBISS/OPAC and Google scholar were captured. In the latter case, it was necessary to use the software tool Publish or Perish enabling us to export bibliographic records with citations. We processed and analyzed the bibliographic data and citations with a variety of software tools (e.g. management and processing of bibliographic records for the analysis of different types of networks). Based on the analysis it was possible to indirectly determine to which extent violence could threat public safety and cause material damage that taxpayers have to pay for. The preliminary research perfectly shows the huge potential of scientific databases (e.g. catalogues, bibliographies) and appropriate analytical software tools for the investigation or evaluation of social problems.
