Most cited papers in three related journals

The table below is based on my own (admittedly arguable) categorisation of the articles that appear as the “20 most cited” on the publishers’ webpages for ROLSI, the Journal of Pragmatics and Discourse Studies in March 2015.

Most cited

What I notice is that those of ROLSI‘s articles that are most cited are almost all Conversation Analytic ones, perhaps reflecting the journal’s centre of gravity over the last decade. Discourse articles feature most in Discourse Studies, as might be expected, and the Journal of Pragmatics is by far the most eclectic. Interestingly enough, CA articles also make a good showing in these latter two journals as well as in ROLSI.
