Applied bibliometrics: Using citation analysis in the journal submission process

Scholars in all fields who are engaged in the publication process must submit their work to appropriate journals. Selecting the appropriate journal can be a challenging task. This article argues that citation analysis may be an effective tool of journal selection. Citation patterns can be used to determine the extent of bibliographic coupling between an author's unpublished article and journals in the authors' field. The article could then be submitted to a journal with a similar pattern of citations. Evidence from published articles in economics indicates that this technique is able to determine the journal in which an article is published. © 1991 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
