Hierarchical clustering of mathematical journals based upon citation matrices

  • P. B. Slater


Journal-to-journal citation matrices can be examined with a two-stage double-standardization and hierarchical clustering procedure that has been widely applied to other transaction flow tables. An illustration is given, using 1967–1975 citations between 22 mathematical journals. Groups oriented to analysis and to algebra are discerned. Certain journals, such as theProceedings of the American Mathematical Society, are shown to have broad, nonspecialized tjes with the other periodicals.
