a1_This citation analysis of Sociologický časopis / Czech Sociological Review looks at the journal’s total influence and the influence outside Czech(oslovak) sociology as measured by the number of citations in foreign journals. Indexed since the 1970s, SČ/CSR is the longest-covered East European sociology journal in the Web of Science. Beyond citation counts available through the WoS’s Basic Search option, foreign-journal citation data were collected by examining the reference lists of all WoS-indexed foreign-journal articles listed as citing SČ/CSR in the WoS’s Cited Reference Search or Google Scholar. In total, 690 foreign-journal citations of SČ/CSR between 1965 and 2013 were retrieved, including 113 author self-citations and 253 citations made by Czech and Slovak authors. Among the 690 citations, 379 are not indexed correctly in the WoS. The number of foreign citations missing from the WoS ranges from 14% for the Czech issues in 2002-2013 to 32% for the English issues in the same period. WoS is missing all 221 citations to the Czech Sociological Review between 1993 and 2001; this was a separate journal not included in the SSCI, which resulted in an important loss of international visibility for Czech sociology. In terms of per-article-citedness by foreign journals, the fewest citations were of the journal in the period up to 1989, followed by the Czech issues in 2002-2013, and the Czech issues again in 1990-2001. The highest foreign citation numbers were received by the English-language edition in 1993-2001, followed by the English issues in 2002-2013. The author’s expanded foreign citation data set yields a very different ranking of most-cited articles than the one based on WoS citation counts, suggesting that WoS is not a reliable source of data for identifying most-cited articles.
