Abstract

The current study extended prior citation analyses in criminology and criminal justice by drawing upon an alternative, non-published source for inquiry--reading lists provided to PhD students to aid in their preparation for criminological theory doctoral examinations. Reading lists were analyzed and the most-cited scholars were identified using various measures. The strengths and weaknesses of this methodological approach as well as implications are discussed.
