Collaborative computing has emerged as a majorsubject of study within the field of businesscomputing. It is concerned with the use ofcomputers to facilitate or enable the work ofmultiple participants engaged in collaborativeventures. Researchers and educators canbenefit from an analysis that identifiesjournals with greatest impacts on developmentof the collaborative computing subject area. The benefits include an appreciation of the topoutlets for publishing and the leading sourcesfor monitoring development in collaborativecomputing research, plus the most importantreference discipline journals for findingsupport for these developments. This studyemploys a citation analysis methodology todetermine the journals that have had thegreatest influence on multiparticipant,collaborative computing research. Over 19,000citations from four base journals across an8-year period are collected and analyzed.
