Attached in Microsoft Word is an article by a colleague of mine, Paul
Kelsey, on the effect of the indexing of a journal on its library holdings
and citation rates.  It is an extremely interesting practitioner piece on
how to improve the importance and influence of a given journal.  It reports
on a project that he and the editor of Financial Counseling and Planning
undertook to increase the visibility and citation rate of that journal.  I
like it, because I served a technical advisor to Paul and it validates the
number of points I have been making in respect to the impact factor.


PS  The LSU e-mail system has a tendency to corrupt files.  Therefore, if
the file does not open for you and you want to read the article, then
please contact me, so that I can send you the article via another system
that does not corrupt files.
