Summary

This study describes and evaluates key bibliometric patterns in the articles published by the former "Journal of Education for Librarianship" (JEL) during its first 24 volumes of existence from 1960 to 1984. Data from each issue of JEL were collected and analyzed using a statistical analysis software package, SPSSx (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences, Version X). Since becoming a refereed journal in 1971 (volume 12), JEL's scholarliness has increased dramatically--at least insofar as a quantitative indicator reveals. Before 1971, just more than half of all articles contained bibliographic citations. Since 1971, this proportion has grown steadily, and in the 1980s, 9 out of 10 articles were referenced. The number of citations per referenced article has also increased steadily, from 8 before refereeing to 17 in the 1980s. This article includes background information on the issue; a theoretical framework for studying bibliometric patterns; a review of the related literature; conceptual problems and definitions; explanation of data collection methods and procedures; study findings; and a summary and conclusions. Statistical comparisons, numerous data tables, codes, database exclusions, and project costs are appended. (Author/THC)
