Figure 1: Citation pattern of the Wall Street Journal. 
During 2005, the Wall Street Journal is cited 1,608 times by 240 journals
included in the Social Science Citation Index. 
These 19 journals cited more than 1% of its total being cited, i.e. > 16
I took this journal as an example in honor of Stephen Bensman who seems to
read it and keeps us uptodate when peer review is under discussion ! :-)
See for technical details:  <> Visualization
of the Citation Impact Environments of Scientific Journals: An online
mapping exercise, Journal of the American Society for Information Science
and Technology 58(1), 25-38, 2007 . This is an extension with non-scientific
(or non-ISI-listed) journals. The size of the node should be compared with
the horizontal axis of the other nodes because self-citations are excluded
in the case of non-listed journals.
