Australian Education Journals: Quantitative and Qualitative Indicators
Haddow, Gaby; Genoni, Paul
Australian Academic & Research Libraries, v40 n2 p88-104 Jun 2009
This paper reports on a study that applied citation-based measurements to Australian education journals. Citations data were drawn from two sources, Web of Science and Scopus, and these data were used to calculate each journal's impact factor, "h"-index, and diffusion factor. The rankings resulting from these analyses were compared with draft rankings assigned to the journals by Excellence for Research in Australia (ERA). Scopus emerged as the citation source most favourable to these journals and some consistency of data across the citation-based measures was found. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
