Abstract

The purpose of this study was to use citation information from six nationally distributed music education research journals for the period 1990-1995 to determine journal eminence. All references for all articles in the six journals were reviewed and the journals cited were tabulated. Final tabulations included 576 different journals, with 134 of the journals from the field of music. Music journals included both professional and research journals. Through citation analysis, it was found that 15 journals represented the majority of music research journal citations. Three journals formed a first tier of prominent music research journals and represented over 80% of the total citations, with one journal accounting for nearly 55% of the total citations. Three journals in a second tier accounted for approximately 12% of the total citations, while the remaining 9 journals, in a third tier, accounted for less than 8% of the total citations.
