Changes in Scholarly Influence in Major International Criminology Journals

Changes in Scholarly Influence in Major International Criminology Journals AbstractChanges in scholarly influence in four major international journals of the English-speaking world (ANZ, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology; BJC, British Journal of Criminology; CJC, Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice; CRIM, Criminology) were measured by determining the most cited scholars in 1996 to 2000 and comparing them with the most cited scholars in 1991 to 1995 and 1986 to 1990.The number of cited authors increased by nearly 40% between 1986 to 1990 and 1996 to 2000. The most cited scholars in 1996 to 2000 were John Braithwaite in ANZ, Ken Pease in BJC, Julian V. Roberts in CJC and Robert J. Sampson in CRIM. The most cited works of the most cited authors showed that some scholars were specialized, because they had a large number of citations of one or two seminal works, usually books, and often theoretical in nature. Other scholars were versatile, because they had many different works cited a few times each. Between 1986 to 1990 and 1996 to 2000, the citations of American scholars in the other three journals decreased. Citations in the four journals in 2005 were also counted and compared with citations in 2000, 1995 and 1990. John Braithwaite was highly cited in all four journals in 11 of the 16 possible years. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Australian & New Zealand Journal of Criminology SAGE

Abstract

AbstractChanges in scholarly influence in four major international journals of the English-speaking world (ANZ, Australian and New Zealand Journal of Criminology; BJC, British Journal of Criminology; CJC, Canadian Journal of Criminology and Criminal Justice; CRIM, Criminology) were measured by determining the most cited scholars in 1996 to 2000 and comparing them with the most cited scholars in 1991 to 1995 and 1986 to 1990.The number of cited authors increased by nearly 40% between 1986 to 1990 and 1996 to 2000. The most cited scholars in 1996 to 2000 were John Braithwaite in ANZ, Ken Pease in BJC, Julian V. Roberts in CJC and Robert J. Sampson in CRIM. The most cited works of the most cited authors showed that some scholars were specialized, because they had a large number of citations of one or two seminal works, usually books, and often theoretical in nature. Other scholars were versatile, because they had many different works cited a few times each. Between 1986 to 1990 and 1996 to 2000, the citations of American scholars in the other three journals decreased. Citations in the four journals in 2005 were also counted and compared with citations in 2000, 1995 and 1990. John Braithwaite was highly cited in all four journals in 11 of the 16 possible years.
