Objective – The aim of the article is to assess the usefulness and bibliometric features of the results obtained through the application of the annual aging factor in certain areas of the library and science studies. Moreover, some selected properties of annual aging factor and half-life index are compared. Research method – The article was prepared on the basis of the literature analysis and key issues were illustrated with sample data collected in accordance with the original methods of processing experimental data outlined in the literature. Results and conclusions – The application of annual aging factor and related ‘utility’ idea is possible in the management of library collections, provided that the literature citation distribution follows the pattern of the exponential decline. Furthermore, the index can be used in bibliometric investigations on periodicals and disciplines of study analyzed with focus on their aging characteristics aspect.

Teza/Cel artykułu – Celem artykułu jest ocena przydatności i charakterystyk bibliometrycznych wyników uzyskiwanych w oparciu o annual aging factor Bertrama Brookesa w niektórych obszarach bibliotekoznawstwa i naukoznawstwa, jak również porównanie niektórych aspektów stosowania wskaźników annual aging oraz half-life. Metoda badań – Artykuł opracowano na podstawie analizy piśmiennictwa, a kluczowe problemy związane z annual aging factor zostały zilustrowane na podstawie przykładowych danych, które przygotowano w oparciu o oryginalne metody organizacji danych doświadczalnych przedstawione w piśmiennictwie. Wyniki i wnioski – Wykorzystanie annual aging factor oraz związanej z nim koncepcji użyteczności prac naukowych możliwe jest tylko w przypadku wykładniczego spadku cytowań artykułów z kolejnych, coraz odleglejszych od daty badania lat. Wskaźnik wykazuje także przydatność w naukoznawczym badaniu czasopism oraz dyscyplin naukowych, w aspekcie szybkości starzenia się publikacji.
