Title: Synchronous and diachronous citation distribution
Authors: Nakamoto, H.
Issue Date: 1988
Publisher: Elsevier
Citation: Egghe, L. & Rousseau, R. (Ed.) Informetrics 87/88, Belgium : Diepenbeek, p. 157-163
Abstract: Using the data of the Science Citation Index, it is confirmed that the decrease in citation by age is exponential and independent of the number of source publications. It is further shown that synchronous and diachronous percentage distributions highly coincide. As such, data of synchronous distribution can replace data of diachronous distribution in literature studies.
