INVISIBLE INFLUENCE: A CITATION ANALYSIS OF CRIME AND JUSTICE ARTICLES PUBLISHED IN LEADING SOCIOLOGY JOURNALS

INVISIBLE INFLUENCE: A CITATION ANALYSIS OF CRIME AND JUSTICE ARTICLES PUBLISHED IN LEADING... Although research consistently ranks leading sociology periodicals among the most prestigious places to publish in criminology and criminal justice, no recent citation study has examined these journals. Through an analysis of 107 articles and research notes appearing from 1991 to 1997 in four prominent general-interest sociology journals, we list the 50 most- cited scholars and the 25 most-cited works. We discovered many influential scholars and works that were invisible in previous citation studies that examined only leading criminology and criminal justice journals. By neglecting prominent sociology journals, previous citation researchers have misrepresented the influence of scholarship on crime and justice. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Crime and Justice Taylor & Francis
