What happens to our ideas? A bibliometric analysis of articles in social work in health care in the 1990s

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Scholars spend a considerable amount of time reflecting upon their professional work. When individuals decide to communicate their professional thoughts beyond informal venues, the penultimate expression of their reflection is the peer reviewed journal article. The study reported here entailed a bibliometric analysis of articles appearing in the journal Social Work in Health Care during the 1990s, in order to better understand what happens to our ideas after they appear in a peer reviewed journal article.
