Will This Paper Ever Be Cited?
Burrell, Quentin L.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v53 n3 p232-35 Feb 1, 2002
A recently proposed stochastic model to describe the citation process in the presence of obsolescence is used to answer the question: If a paper has not been cited by a certain time after its publication, what is the probability that it will ever be cited? A proof of the theorem is appended. (Author/LRW)
