Sources of Information in Learning Disabilities and Special Education Literature.
Vockell, Edward L.; Jacobson, Vivienne
Citations from five major journals ("Journal of Learning Disabilities,""Learning Disabilities Quarterly,""Exceptional Children,""Journal of Special Education," and "American Journal of Mental Deficiency") in the field of learning disabilities and special education were examined to determine the nature and age of the sources. Citations were collected according to publication data and nature of the source. Results indicated considerable differences in the sources of information employed by the journals. Journal citations were somewhat more recent than those found in similar and related studies. Overlap and stability patterns suggested that, in general, there was a tendency for each of them to refer to a consistent pool of sources, although this tendency was stronger in "American Journal of Mental Deficiency" and "Learning Disabilities Quarterly" than in the "Journal of Special Education" or "Exceptional Children."
