This paper uses a method of citation analysis to examine the flow of knowledge between Human Relations and its most closely neighboring journals. Loglinear analysis of the citations for the period 1986-1990 is used to model the asymmetric citation matrix as a product of ''importance'' and ''receptivity'' vectors and a symmetric ''similarity'' matrix. The similarities are investigated by cluster analysis, and multidimensional scaling is used to produce a map of the journals. The results provide objective evidence about the sources and destinations of developments in the academic fields with which Human Relations is concerned. Potential applications of the method to the study of other human and organizational interrelationships are also discussed.
