The task is to write a little report on the investigation of collaboration rates and citation rates in journal papers.
It concentrates on the following research questions:
1. Is there a signicantly dierent rate of collaborative work amongst dierent journals?
2. Is there a signicant dierence in quality of research (as measured by number of citations)
set against number of collaborators?
3. Has the pattern of collaboration changed over time?
To answer research question three, you will need to pick another, earlier year of publication
and collect data for that year also. You will have to decide the time gap between your older
and newer journals which you are using. The gap should be larger enough for there to be
the possibility of a change in the pattern of collaboration (i.e. the gap should be more than
a couple of years or so). You will need to ensure that your chosen journals were published in
both survey years.
You will need to have a source of citations counts. You could use Science Citation Index
and Google Scholar. (Note, you are not being asked to look in detail at the citations but only
the citation count.)
Your investigation should be written up as a scientic paper in the style of a specic journal
or conference. You should choose a journal or conference appropriate to your subject area and
which will be best in training you for research publication in your eld. Your paper should
describe your investigation, present your results and offer an interpretation of your results.
