Citations from OE journals to JAEOL articles were mostly from JAEOL itself (Table 5), and citations from OE journals to JEE were mostly from JEE itself (Table 7).
In the JAEOL between 2000 and 2007, 43% of authors were affiliated with the UK/Europe and 29% from the US (Table 9, Table 10).
OE discourse and impacts outside JAEOL, AJOE, and JEE
Although OE has fuzzy boundaries, we decided that to move away from the definition of OE determined by our interest in AJOE, JAEOL, and JEE would require a different study.
Certainly, monographs or articles with an OE focus published in the wider educational or other literature can be well-cited (Table 10), but publication in conference proceedings or OE journals other than AJOE, JAEOL, or JEE appears to be associated with modest numbers of citations at best.
2) With one or two exceptions, highly cited articles were published in AJOE, JAEOL, JEE or in larger journals in adjacent fields.
The AJOE commenced in a peer-reviewed format in 1998, the JAEOL in 2000, and the JEE in 1978.
