A Citation Analysis of Master's Level English Theses Submitted to the Department of English-Kent State University, 1985-1995.
Slutz, Mark J.
This paper is a citation analysis of 16 Master's theses which were submitted to the Department of English-Kent State University from 1985 to 1995. Each citation from the 16 theses was analyzed along the following criteria: gender of citation author; format of citation (book, article within book, journal article, thesis, dissertation); nature of citation (text, criticism, biography, other); date of publication; and place of publication (country). Results were tabulated for each individual thesis, aggregate totals for each of the five criteria, and along two clusters: (1) American themed, British themed, and other, and (2) those authored by male students and by female students. Findings indicated that more male authored citations were utilized; most sources were books, articles within books, and journal articles; criticism was used most, followed by text, other sources, then biography; most items used were published in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada; and most items were published during 1950-1989. Data is shown in 20 tables. (Contains 33 references.) (Author/AEF)
