Title: An explanation of the relation between the fraction of multinational publications and the fractional score of a country.
Authors: EGGHE, Leo

Citation: Scientometrics, 45(2). p. 291-310
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
