|Title:||A RATIONALE FOR LOTKA'S LAW: AN EXAMINATION OF EMPIRICAL DATA|
|Authors:||Rai, L. P.|
|Abstract:||A number of attempts have been made in the past to describe scientific productivity. These studies suggest that law of scientific productivity follows an inverse law of growth and measures- the frequency of occurrence of scientific output. In this paper, Lotka's law of scientific productivity among authors and within institutions has been examined with the help of empirical data. Based on these findings an attempt is made to rationalise the law.|
