A Citation Analysis of Risk, Insurance, and Actuarial Research: 2001 Through 2005


  • L. Lee Colquitt
  • David W. Sommer
  • William L. Ferguson


The bibliographies of 17 "risk" journals were evaluated to determine the relative influence of these "risk" journals on risk, insurance, and actuarial research published during the years 2001 through 2005. Tables are provided that show the frequency with which each of these journals cites itself and the other sample journals. The journals are ranked, within two groups (risk and insurance group and actuarial group), based on their total influence (total citations including and excluding self-citations) and their per article influence (per article citations including and excluding self-citations). Finally, the most frequently cited articles from each "risk" journal are reported. Copyright (c) The Journal of Risk and Insurance, 2009.
