Whose Web of Knowledge[TM] Is It Anyway?: Citing Feminist Research in the Field of Higher Education
Hart, Jeni; Metcalfe, Amy Scott
Journal of Higher Education, v81 n2 p140-163 Mar-Apr 2010
We examined the post-publication period of six feminist articles (Hart, 2006) using citation indexing. From our findings, we argue that both indexes are embedded within an enduring system of academic patriarchy and neither index truly measures impact of scholarly work. Implications of current impact measures for promotion, tenure, and merit are discussed. (Contains 3 tables and 2 notes.)
