Abstract: Following previous citation studies published by this author on the same general subject, the impact of foreign authors on Yugoslav psychology was analyzed. The citation analysis was performed on all articles published from 1981 to 1990 in all four Yugoslav journals classifiable as both research and psychological. The local citation rate of international authors was compared with their global impact and prominence. The results of comparisons revealed various characteristics of Yugoslav psychology of that period, the main weaknesses being labeled as archaism and autism.
Key words: Citation rate, prominence, psychologists, psychology journals, Yugoslavia
