Phelan's Bibliometric Analysis of the Impact of Australian Educational Research
Bates, Richard
Australian Educational Researcher, v30 n2 p57-64 Aug 2003
Phelan (2000) has produced a complex bibliometric analysis of the international contribution of Australian educational research based upon publications and citations reported in the journals indexed by the Institute for Scientific Information--the Standard & Poors of the academic world. This paper examines Phelan's analysis, showing its strengths and weaknesses, as well as examining his proposal for the establishment of an Australian database along the lines of the ISI's index. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
