Keywords:measuring impact, migration studies, ranking academic work, journal articles, books, scholars, research
The aim of this paper is to offer an independent measure of the impact of published research in migration studies field. Using the Google Scholar citation database and Ann Harzing ranking software, we have created a long list of most cited works in migration studies and drew a list of 100 top articles and books and 100 most cited authors who appeared in periodicals and books. Like any lists, this one also has some drawbacks but yet it reflects somewhat the influence of the work our colleagues in this fast growing field produce.
