The present study is an institutional domain analysis from the perspective of the information requirements of the scientific-technical area of the University of Extremadura in order to optimise access to and availability of scientific publications. The data were the international publications of the University, their authors and the departments to which they belonged and their reference lists obtained from the SCI (ISI Science Citation Index ®). The results are presented and a methodological analysis is made using various statistical techniques (cluster analysis, factorial analysis, and multidimensional scaling) to determine the structure of the departmental relationships in the institution, and the outputs of Kohonen neural networks to display the relationships between journals and departments.
