Rawal Medical Journal – An Analysis of Citation Pattern

Muhammad Javed, Syed Shoaib Shah.

Objective: To analyze the citation pattern adopted by the Rawal Medical Journal (RMJ) for the year 2006.
Methods: Citations of articles published in the RMJ during the year 2006 were collected and analyzed manually from the journal articles employing systematic methods.
Results: There were 437 citations in 32 research articles in two issues of volume 31 from January to December 2006. The authorship pattern of the citations indicated that more than 23 % contributions were from single author and 77 % were the result of team
work. The ratio of the coordinated work was higher than the sole effort which was a healthy sign among researchers. The articles contributed by single author were 23.11% and that with collaboration of five or more authors was 20.82%. Among the citations, 49.52 % pertained to journal articles. Out of the total cited articles, 23 were contributed by the Pakistani authors, 8 by foreign authors and 1 jointly by Pakistani and foreign author.
Conclusion: The citations from Pakistani researchers were rather low. Majority of contributions were by Pakistani authors; author and journal self citations were low indicating a high Impact factor. More research activities and better literature search are required to improve journal quality. (Rawal Med J 2008;33:254-257).

Key words: Rawal Medical Journal, citation analysis, scientometrics, Medicine periodicals.
