Slater, Thomas ORCID:, Scourfield, Jonathan Bryn ORCID: and Sloan, Luke ORCID: 2012. Who is citing whom in social work? A response to Hodge, Lacasse and Benson. British Journal of Social Work 42 (8) , pp. 1626-1633. 10.1093/bjsw/bcs190

The top 100 most cited papers in social work journals in 2000–09 were recently listed in a British Journal of Social Work paper by Hodge, Lacasse and Benson. The citations of these 100 papers in a two-year period (2007–09) were identified and a further manual web-based search was conducted to identify some key features of the citing sources. Descriptive statistics are presented on language of publication and national location of citing authors, as well as type of citing source. Bivariate analysis was conducted of the national location of cited journal by national location of citing first author. This analysis shows a strong tendency towards within-country citation in both the UK and USA, providing some evidence of intellectual chauvinism amongst social work academics and, more specifically, evidence of a Great Atlantic Divide.
