The Most Cited Articles in Sociology by Journal

The books or journal articles that have been cited the most over the last five years are listed below by journal. Raw data is from the Web of Science.

The total database includes 5,306 articles published between May, 2008 and May, 2012 citing 186,299 different works with an average article referencing 59 different works. The most frequently cited 10% of works accounted for 38% of total references.

The citations can sometimes be tricky to decipher (e.g. “North DC 1990 I I Change EC Perfor”), but that’s the way data came. I’ve only done minimal cleaning of the raw data. Note for example that entries 9 and 11 for the journal Mobilization are two different editions of the same book. If something seems off or you want to see what the numbers look like for a different journal, let me know.
