A core journal survey is undertaken to ascertain the relationship between the existing and the gene engineering field, one of the hi-technology area.

In this study, the following four journal ranking methods are used to select core journals in the gene engineering field; (1) Productivity of journals: searching Biological Abstracts, Excerpta Medica. and Biotechnology Abstracts using two descriptors, “gene engineering” and “recombinant DNA”, (2) Citation based measure: ranking by “impact factor” in Journal Citation Reports, (3) Peer judgment: the assesment of 68 Japanese gene engineering researchers by survey questionaires for journal ranking, (4) Author’s contribution: survey of the journals contributed by the most productive 30 authors in the field.

As a result, 24 core journals are selected and 21 journals in these core journals are divided into three categories; (1) multidiciplinary journals (Nature, Science, PNAS, BBA), (2) core journals in existing fields (11 journals), and (3) specialized journals in the gene engineering (5 journals). Core journals in existing fields contain core journals in biochemistry and molecular biology (Biochem. Biophys. Res. Comm., etc.), microbiology (J. Gen. Microbiol.), virology (Virology, etc.), cell biology (J. Cell Biol.), and genetics (Chromosoma).

These results may suggest that the gene engineering field up till the present has not existed independantry at these fields.
