Crossing National, Continental, and Linguistic Boundaries: Toward a Worldwide Evaluation Research Community in Journals of Evaluation
Diaz-Puente, Jose M.; Cazorla, Adolfo; Dorrego, Ana
American Journal of Evaluation, v28 n4 p399-415 2007
In an attempt to build a worldwide evaluation community, English evaluation journals are best positioned to promote international dialogue and increasingly provide international exchanges that deepen and enrich the evaluation field. This article analyzes the degree of internationalization achieved by these journals by looking at the extent of international authorship of the contributions they publish. Results show that--in spite of the efforts made--national, continental, and linguistic boundaries are still hindering the international exchange in the journals. Discussion is presented concerning the implications of these results and the efforts required to take greater advantage of the English journals to bridge national and regional traditions in the evaluation field. (Contains 6 tables and 1 note.) [This research was also supported by the Fulbright Commission.]
