The "Financial Counseling and Planning" Indexing Project: Establishing a Correlation between Indexing, Total Citations, and Library Holdings
Kelsey, Paul J.
Journal of Financial Counseling and Planning, v18 n1 p18-23 2007
The researcher hypothesized that increasing the number of indexing services covering a journal would increase library holdings and total citations for the journal. A sample group of 40 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) journals in the "Business, Finance" category was identified and checked for the number of times indexed in Ulrich's Periodicals Directory, the total citations in the JCR, and the library holdings in Online Computer Library Center's (OCLC) WorldCat. A Pearson correlation matrix was constructed, and the conclusion reached was that increasing the number of indexes for a journal increases library holdings and positively affects citation patterns. A discussion of the ongoing efforts to index Financial Counseling and Planning is provided.
