Title: A rhythm indicator for science and the rhythm of {N:Science}
Authors: Liang, Liming
Shi, Fei
Issue Date: 2006
Citation: Scientometrics, 68(3). p. 535-544
Abstract: The rhythm of science may be compared to the rhythm of music. The R-indicator studied in this article is a complex indicator, trying to reflect part of this rhythm. The R-indicator interweaves publication and citation data over a long period. In this way R-sequences can be used to describe the evolutionary rhythm of science considered in a novel way. As an example the R-sequence of the journal Science from 1945 on is calculated.
