The Effectiveness of American Society of Agronomy Journals: A Citationist's Perspective
Citation data for 66 agronomic and soil science journals indexed in the 1989 Science Citation Index (SCI) are examined to determine how publications of the American Society of Agronomy compare with others in the field. For these “core” journals, rankings by number of articles, citations, and impact factors are presented. The journals are then treated as if they comprised a single “Macrojournal of Agronomy” to see what publications it cited and what it was cited by. Highest impact articles and most active research fronts in agronomy and the soil sciences are also presented. Based on these data, 11 journals are identified as occupying a prominent position in the field.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
