Patti Valkenburg has been listed among the top 10 authors contributing to the four “central”  communication journals from 2017 to 2021. She is the only listed scholar affiliated to a Dutch university. The four central communication journals are: Journal of Communication, Communication Research, Human Communication Research, and Communication Monographs. The acceptance rates of these journals typically lie around 5-8%.

Valkenburg also appeared in the top 15 scholars publishing communication journals in general (24 journals). She succeeded to sustain her position: In earlier bibliometric studies, covering 2007 to 2011 and from 2012 to 2016, she also appeared as one of most prolific communication scholars.
