A bibliometric analysis of the first 36 years (1965-2000) of the Journal of
Personality and Social Psychology (JPSP) is presented. The authors analyzed
the structure of JPSP on the basis of contents and other aspects related to
productivity such as growth in the number of articles and authors, and
"invisible colleges". In 2001, JPSP articles were cited over 23000 times.
An increasing number of older, classic articles are cited, suggesting that
there are an accumulating number of citations whose influence endures over
time. JPSP articles have grown in length, number of studies included, number
of references, and number of authors and have become more international with
an increasing proportion of authors from outside the United States. The
pattern of findings suggests an increasingly complex and mature science.
