|Abstract: ||Consider a country's national output, measured by counting the number of authors from country c that collaborate in every paper in a bibliography. Depending or not that country c appears at least once in every paper, we are able to deduce the corresponding relationship
between c's fractional score and its fraction of multinational papers to which c belongs.
One of these models, a slowly decreasing concave function is completely similar to the observed relation in [Nederhof and Moed, Scientometrics 27(1), 39-52, 19931 between the fractionated score of a country c and its fraction of multinational papers.
The proof of the models developed here uses a stochastic property of weighting schemes, namely that the average fractional score of a country equals its total score|
