The Relative Influence of Social Work Journals: Impact Factors vs. Core Influence.
Furr, L. Allen
Journal of Social Work Education, v31 n1 p38-45 Win 1995
Two methods of ranking the influence of social work journals, based on citation counts, are compared for 22 core journals. Substantial differences between the resulting rankings suggest that impact factors do not accurately indicate the most influential journals within the social work discipline. Implications for faculty and libraries are discussed. (Author/MSE)
