Google Scholar: Metrics

Have you ever wondered what the top 20 most popular early childhood academic journals are (according to Google Scholar)? Well, wonder no more!

  1. Go to Google Scholar
  2. In the right hand corner click Metrics
  3. Scroll down to Social Sciences
  4. Click Subcategories…

Subcategories

Here are some subcategories to explore:

  • Early Childhood Education
  • Education
  • Educational Administration
  • Educational Psychology & Counseling
  • Educational Technology
  • Special Education
  • Teaching and Teacher Administration

As promised here are the top 20 most popular early childhood education journals.

Early_Childhood_Education_Journals

The list includes information on h5-index and h5-medium. The h5-index number is hyper-linked and provides data on the most cited articles within a journal.

Citation_Counter

As you can see the first item below is cited 243 times (and if you click that number it will lead you to all of the articles that cite it).

Howes, C., Burchinal, M., Pianta, R., Bryant, D., Early, D., Clifford, R., & Barbarin, O. (2008). Ready to learn? Children’s pre-academic achievement in pre-kindergarten programs. Early Childhood Research Quarterly, 23(1), 27–50. doi:10.1016/j.ecresq.2007.05.002

If you are interested in reading Early Childhood Research Quarterly we have issues 1990 to the present, in the Library’s print holdings area (that’s code for journals and periodicals in print, in back of the Library right-hand side).
