This study delineates the structure of the educational journal literature, and its relationship to surrounding psychological journals. Citations amongst 140 heavily cited, widely circulating journals were used to define the interrelationships between the journals, and by inference between the research areas they represent. All education journals of wide circulation which contained 100 or more references per year were used in the study. All of the maps and measures emphasize the dominant influence psychology has as the primary source of knowledge for education research. Elementary education and guidance are in the mainstream of education literature while higher and general education are not. Science education and special education are compact, self contained subfields having few connections with other education literature. Two-step citation maps linked each journal with the two journals it cites most frequently. The citation chains formed subfields maps showing the interrelationships between different graphic clusters of journals. A cluster analysis, using all of the citations from each journal, confirmed the subfield clusters generated by the graphic methodology. Hierarchies were constructed illustrating dependency relationships between the individual journals and between clusters of journals. Procedures were developed which isolated general and subfield core journals, and journals peripheral to education. (Author)
