Abstract:

The first part of this paper cautions against the injudicious use of citation data to rank journals. The second and main part presents a correspondence analysis of the descriptors assigned by abstractors to papers in five HCI, two human factors and three psychology journals. This analysis makes it possible to position the journals in a space of descriptors. The HCI journals form a cluster distinct from the psychology and human factors journals, suggesting HCI has now separated from its parent disciplines. Further, it is possible to position individual journals, for example, Behaviour & Information Technology is identified as an HCI journal with a leaning towards human factors.
