Abstract

Citation analysis is used to identify a core collection of journals in communication disorders that provide 80% of the sample’s article citations. The bibliometric concept of “success-breeds-success” is reviewed, and its application to this sample of journals is quantified. The special problems of defining a core collection in a multidisciplinary field are discussed. Data is also provided on the types of publications cited, and the age distribution of cited journals.
