Title: Authorship patterns in physics literature: An informetric study on citations in doctoral theses of the Indian Institute of Science
Authors: Pillai, K.G. Sudhier
Issue Date: Jun-2007
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Presents a case study of the trends in authorship pattern and collaborative research in physics with a sample of 11,412 journals and 1,328 book citations appended in the physics doctoral dissertations awarded by the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore during 1999-2003. The study found that team research is preferred in the field of physics rather than solo research. The average number of authors per journal articles was 3 and for books it was 1.69. The degree of collaboration in different years was calculated and the average value of it for journals was 0.08 and 0.44 for books. The authorship collaboration is more in journal articles than in books. The study concluded that authorship pattern, the degree of collaboration and the average number of authors were different in journals and in books.
