Summary/Abstract: The volume deals with the phenomenon of the culture and praxis of literature citation cultivated in scientific communities. It constitutes a presentation of the authors’ research results, in particular the issues that fully encapsulate the subject of the life cycles of scientific publications and the process of the aging of literature, discussed against the background of the current state of research presented in world literature. A broad selection of world literature on the subject (especially Anglophone literature) dealing with issues crucial from the point of view of the aim and subject of the presented work, the origins of which date back to the 1920s, constitutes the research material or, in other words, the empirical base for all the analyses undertaken and presented in this monograph,. The method adopted in this monograph for the development of the available research material was, first of all, its detailed analysis, with the aim of isolating certain leading research trends present in the discussed world literature, then proposing their typology, uncovering the most significant and fundamental theses, statements and results proposed within their scope, and then synthesizing the results obtained during the analysis and presenting them in the form of the final summary and conclusions.
