Abstract

In the current study, researchers conducted a bibliometric analysis on the topic of international school psychology in order to gauge how prominent international school psychology is in the world today, if there has been growth in the area, and if it is important for current researchers to begin more work in the field. This study updated and extended a previous bibliometric analysis conducted by Jennings, Ehrhardt, and Poling (2008). The following questions were used as the common interest questions to perform the extended bibliometric analysis: (1) which nations contributed articles to SPI? (2) how many SPI manuscripts involved multi-author (and multinational) collaboration? (3) which institutions were the most prolific contributors to SPI? (4) which first authors or editors were most frequently published in SPI? and (5) what nations are the studies being conducted in? After data analysis, researchers found there was in increase in international contribution to SPI, an increase in cross-national collaboration, and a prevalence of English speaking institutional contributors. Furthermore, the area of international school psychology appears to be emerging as a new and important facet of school psychology.
