Résumé / Abstract

Five core library science journals were examined to study the accuracy of citations in library literature. A total of 1,094 references from 131 articles were verified directly by comparing the published citation with the original publication. In 193 references, 223 errors were detected. A review of citations at manuscript stage was also carried out for one of the journals. The results of the study show that library and information professionals, in spite of their awareness of difficulties posed by inaccurate citations, are prone to making such mistakes themselves. The article emphasizes a need for greater awareness among LIS professionals of keeping their citations error free, and suggests other aspects of the subject for further study
