Statistical Modelling of Citation Exchange Among Statistics Journals
TLDR
Analysis of the table of cross-citations among a selection of Statistics journals suggests that modelling the exchange of citations between journals is useful to highlight the most prestigious journals, but also that journal citation data are characterized by considerable heterogeneity, which needs to be properly summarized.
