Abstract: In this article a review of Merton’s article about the Matthew effect is presented. The authors discuss what they think Merton really meant and link it to the use of concept symbols and defaults. The Matthew effect is linked to the notions of concept symbols and defaults. The diffusion of Merton’s ideas in science over time is discussed. Several h- and R-indices related to “Matthew” publications are derived. Related effects, namely the Podunk effect, the Knudop effect and the Wehttam effect are briefly discussed. Also the Matilda effect is given some attention as is the under representation of women in science and factors explaining this phenomenon.
