Abstract  

This paper surveys 32 renowned Industrial Engineering (IE) journals with regard to authorship for the period of 1996–2005. The findings show that the USA was the top contributing country, accounting for approximately one-third of the total number of articles. The 80/20 rule and the entropy measure consistently identify Issues in Science and Technology (IST), Industrial Engineer (IE), and R&D Magazine (RDM) as journals of high country concentration, or journals of low internationality. Conversely, Journal of Materials Processing Technology (JMPT), Production Planning & Control (PPC), and Technovation (TNV) have the highest degree of country diversity, or internationality. The quality of a journal, as expressed by impact factors, its internationality, and its number of articles published, are found to be independent of each other.
