Citation Patterns in Selected Core Journals for Linguistics. LINCS Project Document Series.
Rappaport, Miriam W.
This is the report on a study undertaken to determine the pattern of bibliographic citations in articles published in the 1967 editions of twelve journals identified by linguistics as core journals in linguistics and language sciences. Among the findings reported are: the number of articles, range, and average number of citations per article; the percentages of citations in various time periods; median date and median age of citations in various categories of publications; authors citing themselves in articles; distribution of authors of citations; and the number of citations to selected references. Findings are reported in tabular form. Findings of this study were found to agree generally with those of similar studies undertaken for journals in fields such as communications research and sociology. (FWB)
