Most Cited Legal Periodicals Database

I picked this up on the Slaw blog: Washington and Lee University Law Library has measured the citations of law journals and has calculated rankings by "impact factor" (average number of citations to articles in each journal) and "immediacy" (how rapidly the average article in a particular journal will be discovered and cited).

One can select results for specific countries: the Canadian Journal of Law and Jurisprudence is tied with the University of Toronto Law Journal at the top of the Impact Factor list for Canadian law journals covered. Tied for 2nd place are the Canadian Journal of Family Law and the McGill Law Journal. Third place is also a tie between Queen's Law Journal and Osgoode Hall Law Journal.

There is a full explanation of the ranking methodology on the website of the University's School of Law.
