abstract

  • The authors reviewed the distribution of citations in 278 anxiety disorder studies published in 14 journals in 1990 and 1991. Although both psychiatrists and psychologists frequently authored studies, few journals showed evidence of a substantial interdisciplinary perspective. The 278 anxiety disorder studies contained 3,199 references to articles in the 14 journals. There was a high percentage of "self-citation" in some of the journals and only limited evidence of citations across journal and author disciplines. These findings suggest that anxiety disorder research findings are often not widely disseminated across disciplines.
