"Library Quarterly," 1956-2004: An Exploratory Bibliometric Analysis
Young, Arthur P.
Library Quarterly, v76 n1 p10-18 Jan 2006
"Library Quarterly's" seventy-fifth anniversary invites an analysis of the journal's bibliometric dimension, including contributor attributes, various author rankings, and citation impact. Eugene Garfield's HistCite software, linked to Thomson Scientific's Web of Science, as made available by Garfield, for the period 1956-2004, was used as the core database for analysis in this essay. A brief comparison of "Library Quarterly" contributor citation impact and that of "College & Research Libraries" is also provided. "Library Quarterly" continues to attract a roster of highly productive, international scholars.
