Distributions of Journal Citations in Small Collections of Reading Research.
Mayes, Bea
The distribution of reading-research citations was investigated in three populations of journals. The rule of Pareto-like distribution was confirmed as appropriate for determining the number of journals that would contribute half the citations in populations of 26 to 112 journals. In populations of 42 to 112 journals, 24% to 29% of the high-ranking journals were necessary to account for 80% of the citations. In two further samples, chosen on different criteria, more than 35% of the journals were necessary to account for 80% of the citations. Implications for both researchers and librarians are discussed.
