Phase I Participating Institutions

To date, the Citation project has analyzed 1,911 citations from 174 student papers produced at 16 different US colleges and universities. This constitutes a broadly-based sample of the kinds of writing of all college students and provides a mathematically representative sample that allows us to explore a number of correlations and frequencies across and within the data.
