Abstract

Christensen-Szalanski and Beach (December 1983) concluded that the attention given to commentaries and replies to articles did not justify the extra space. Here is another way to look at their data. The increase in journal space due to commentaries and replies was 40% in their sample.

Keywords: citations, commentaries, journal space, research

Suggested Citation
