The rankings of these 54 authors in CJC were not at all correlated with their rankings in BJC (rho=.07), CRIM (rho=.01), or ANZJC (rho=.13).
In ANZJC in 1986-90, 84 articles were published by a total of 126 individual authors, 122 of whom (97 per cent) were from Australia (114) or New Zealand (8).(12) As the four foreign authors were from the United States, Britain, and Canada (all of whom collaborated with Australian authors) and Hong Kong (an author who previously worked in Australia), ANZJC published no articles of entirely foreign origin.
Table 4 shows the most-cited authors in ANZJC in 1986-90 (those ranked 50 or less).
Surprisingly, the rankings of these 46 authors in ANZJC were (nearly significantly) negatively correlated with their rankings in BJC (rho= -.27, p=.07), CRIM (rho= -.27, p=.07), and CJC (rho= -.20, N.S.).
It might also be argued that the most parochial country is the United States, since a lower proportion of the most cited authors in CRIM were non-native (6 per cent) than in BJC (29 per cent), CJC (50 per cent) or ANZJC (59 per cent).
Certainly, BJC, CJC, and ANZJC interpret criminology widely, with perhaps the majority of their articles concerned with the processing of offenders.
We then added up each author's total score on all five journals (JQ, CRIM, BJC, CJC, and ANZJC) to identify the most-cited authors, out of a theoretical maximum score of 250.
