A New Method for Analyzing Scientific Productivity.
Huber, John C.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n13 p1089-99 Nov 2001
Applies a method for measuring scientific author productivity to a wide variety of fields. Results show that each individual's production is constant over time, the time-period fluctuations follow the Poisson distribution, the productivity varies widely across individuals, and the distribution of productivity follows the exponential distribution.
