Summary/Abstract: The article assumes that the high value of a journal becomes a fact only when its articles form a cluster of documents based on citations by other journals of high value. Only then does the journal become a carrier of the research paradigm in its discipline. However, a citation analysis of selected Polish humanities periodicals does not confirm this assumption. Distribution of parametric value of the journals is random, with a clear predominance of non-impact factor journals. The analysis presents results of a study conducted on ten leading Polish philological journals. The chronological scope of the analysis was limited to years 2000−2009.
