The Bibliometric Journey of IJATE from Local to Global

"International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education" (IJATE) is one of the educational journals that is indexed in major worldwide databases such as Web of Science (WoS) and ERIC. This study presents the bibliometric characteristics of articles published in IJATE between 2014 and 2021 through the bibliometric analyses. Harzing's "Publish or Perish software" was used to collect citation data from WoS and Google Scholar databases as a tool to analyze the impact of articles. Firstly, when contributing institutions are analyzed, especially in recent, it is seen that researchers from countries such as France and Kuwait have been contributing to the journal with publications produced through international collaboration. Moreover, when the average citation numbers per article is calculated, it is understood that Australia (13) and Canada (3.5) are the countries that contribute significantly to the visibility of the journal. Such a trend will contribute significantly to the international recognition of the journal soon. On the other hand, there is a statistically significant positive relationship (r = 0.339; p < 0.01) between usage count and the number of citations by WoS. Our results reveal that while the number of references used in the articles was in consistent with the literature, the average article title lengths (12 ± 3) were slightly longer than the ideal length (10 ± 3). The results will provide important contributions to editors, reviewers, and authors in the journey of IJATE from local to global. The findings can guide authors, the editors and referees and also serve as a potential roadmap for the future studies and journal.
