Use of Non-Social Work Journals in Social Work Research: Results of a Citation Analysis
Strothmann, Molly
Behavioral & Social Sciences Librarian, v29 n4 p244-266 2010
Social work research and teaching draw on the literature of other disciplines. While the use of interdisciplinary sources has been discussed at length and citation patterns in social work literature have been studied, no research has identified specific sources from other disciplines that are important for social work scholarship. Based on analysis of citations from core social work journals, several journals from both social work and other disciplines are identified as important to social work. Interdisciplinary citing patterns are discussed, and the coverage of various subjects in "PsycINFO", "SocINDEX", "Social Work Abstracts", and "Social Services Abstracts" is compared. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
