Abstract

Questions the accuracy of raw citation data sorted only on the basis of names of investigators, used by N. S. Endler et al (see record 1979-26949-001), as a measure of productivity and scholarly impact in psychology. Until problems of inaccuracy are solved, the question of whether citations measure anything substantive for departments or individuals seems premature.
