The Forgotten Scholar: Classical Studies and Periodical Use

by Dabrishus, Mara E.

Abstract (Summary)
This study describes a citation analysis of articles published in The Classical Quarterly, Classical Antiquity, and Mnemosyne. The survey was conducted to determine what periodicals classical studies scholars use and cite in their research.

The citations made in these articles vary from journal to journal, although overall citations point to classical studies journals as most frequently used by classical scholars. Interdisciplinary articles cite focused on fields far outside the classics, but these journals are few in comparison. Lists of the most cited titles in each journal are included, as well as a list which compiles all studied citations.
