The Core Periodicals in Career and Technical Education
Waugh, C. Keith
Journal of Career and Technical Education, v20 n2 p27-39 Spr 2004
When constructing the theoretical or conceptual framework for their research, researchers often rely heavily on a "core" set of periodicals within their discipline for articles relevant to their topic. In this study, an analysis of citations in 265 graduate student research papers, theses, and dissertation was conducted to identify the "core" periodicals in career and technical education research. The findings identified the 50 most frequently cited periodicals by the greatest percentage of students, and these 50 titles were then compared to those periodicals identified previously as the journals that are of greatest interest to career and technical educators. Thirteen of the 67 journals of interest were included in the list of 50 titles. The list of core periodicals produced from this study illustrates the interdisciplinary nature of career and technical education research.
