A citation analysis was carried out on the most important research journals in the field of Catalan literature between 1974
and 2003. The indicators and qualitative parameters obtained show the value of performing citation analysis in cultural and
linguistic areas that are poorly covered by the A&HCI. Catalan literature shows a similar pattern to that of humanities in
general, but it could still be in a stage of consolidation because too little work has as yet been published.
