RNA quantification on Northern blots

Does anybody know a reference discussing ribosomal RNA quantification on 
Northern blot. 
I don't need methods, just litterature.

Actually, many rewievers ask to reliably quantify the signal on Northern. But 
everyone knows that, depending on the experiments (induction...etc), the 
signal, for example, of GAPDH or actin or even rRNA may vary a lot and cannot 
be taken as internal standard for the normalization.
Therefore, what shall I use to normalize my signal ?

Thanks a lot.
