Abstract

This note compares the citation record of Regional Studies with that of other related academic journals in the field of urban and regional studies during 1980–89. Two variables are used to measure the citation record: first, the frequency of citations; and second, an impact factor which is a measure of the average number of citations per paper published. Both measures indicate that the citation record of Regional Studies compares well with other journals. The conclusion is that the papers published in Regional Studies have been well used by those involved in urban and regional research.
