Types of articles were article and review which is included in the study. The three top cited (more than 10 times citations) articles in art criticism were published in 1993 and 1999. The 214 articles mean citation rate was 0.87 (SD 2.38) times. Among the various fields, art (58.87%), arts humanities other topics (28.03%), both art and arts humanities other topics (5.14%), both art and education and educational research (2.33%), both art and history (1.40%), art, arts humanities other topics and literature (1.40%), both art and cultural studies (0.93%), both art and philosophy (0.93%), both art and literature (0.46%), and both arts humanities other topics and cultural studies (0.46%) were the most popular fields of research.

1. Introduction

In the sixteen century scholars collected and produce information on philosophical doctrine and critical approaches (Cromer, 1990). Lankford (1984) stated that achieve knowledge in art criticism may also benefit one encounter other skills principal to life. Art criticism elevates appreciation of art and the procedure of critical thinking. Lankford (1984) stresses on the observer's awareness, in addition to the attributes of the artwork. Risatti (1987) believes that involving art criticism may assistance learners to improve critical thinking skills and problem-solving skills. It makes them to read about, think about, and discuss the values of society; then has them analyzed such values against the backdrop of the social order, as well as question their role in society because contemporary art and historical art both reflects and a construct those values.

In scientific articles especially within the most cited ones these progressions are reflected. Therefore, only a small part of the literatures published in these fields covered by the analysis of the journals coated by the A & HCI (Leydesdorff, Hammarfelt, & Salah, 2011).

The requirement to take up with the quantitative techniques to study scientific literature resulted in the progress of Bibliometrics and its index. Bibliometric markers, which are just article-based, are less illustrative of social and humanities research than natural sciences ( Nederhof, Zwaan, De Bruin, & Dekker, 1989) We utilized these tools to see the key works within the art criticism studies in this research. AHCI and SSCI constitute only 23% of the content of Thomson Scientific databases contrary to the natural sciences that represents 77% (Jacso, 2005).

Based on our knowledge this article is the first study that has reported the articles in the field of the art criticism. Though, no exhaustive article has dealt with articles in art criticism.
