Comparison of the Research Effectiveness of Chemistry Nobelists and Fields Medalist Mathematicians with Google Scholar: the Yule-Simon Model [article]

Stephen J. Bensman, Lawrence J. Smolinsky, Daniel S. Sage
2014 arXiv   pre-print
This paper uses the Yule-Simon model to estimate to what extent the work of chemistry Nobelists and Fields medalist mathematicians is incorporated into the knowledge corpus of their disciplines as measured  ...  Due to differences in the disciplines and prizes, it finds that the work of chemistry Nobelists is better incorporated than that of Fields medalists.  ...  The Yule-Simon distribution The Yule-Simon distribution had its origins in an effort by British biometricians to model Darwinian evolution mathematically.  ...

The superstar phenomenon in the knowledge management and intellectual capital academic discipline

Alexander Serenko, Raymond A.K. Cox, Nick Bontis, Lorne D. Booker
2011 Journal of Informetrics  
The Yule-Simon model and Lotka's square law were applied to the publication data obtained from 2175 articles from 11 KM/IC journals.  ...  It was also observed that the Yule-Simon model and Lotka's square law may produce different distributions with respect to institutions.  ...  With respect to the authors who are both practitioners and academics, the Yule-Simon model generates 2 of 944.817 which rejects the hypothesis that the Yule-Simon model explains the distribution of articles  ...

Firm-Size Distribution in Poland: Is Power Law Applicable?
Rozkład wielkości firm w Polsce - czy ma zastosowanie prawo potęgowe?

Cumulative advantage and success-breeds-success: The value of time pattern analysis

John C. Huber
1998 Journal of the American Society for Information Science  
Many different theoretical models can be made to fit model implies that the shape of the distribution of producempirical informetric data.  ...  This article shows that examination of the time general case, the Simon-Yule framework is expressed as pattern of production allows independent evaluation of the component processes that generate the distribution  ...  One objective of this The Simon-Yule framework is often expressed in such article is to demonstrate a method of determining which a way as to model the growth of the population of authors model is a better  ...

Probability distributions in library and information science: A historical and practitioner viewpoint

Stephen J. Bensman
2000 Journal of the American Society for Information Science  
The difficulties of precisely fitting data to theoretical probability models in library and information science because of the inherent fuzziness of the sets are discussed, and the paper concludes with  ...  stochastic models replace specific, empirical informetric laws.  ...  This thinking dominated Quetelet's approach to the definition of sets.  ...

Manifestation of research teams in journal literature: A growth model of papers, authors, collaboration, coauthorship, weak ties, and Lotka's law

Steven A. Morris, Michel L. Goldstein
2007 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Inter-team collaboration (weak ties) is modeled as random events. This simple growth model is shown to faithfully mimic six network metrics of bipartite paper-author networks.  ...  The model is nested: a team process models the creation of research teams and the success-breedssuccess process of their production of papers, while at a lower level the productivity of authors within  ...  The Yule model was analyzed by Simon and applied to word frequencies (Simon, 1955) .  ...

A Universal Rank-Size Law

Marcel Ausloos, Roy Cerqueti, Wei-Xing Zhou
2016 PLoS ONE  
An alternative theoretical distribution is proposed based on theoretical physics arguments starting from the Yule-Simon distribution. A modeling is proposed leading to a universal form.  ...  A mere hyperbolic law, like the Zipf's law power function, is often inadequate to describe rank-size relationships.  ...  In such a general framework, this model is associated to the Yule-Simon distribution, whose density function f is f ða; bÞ ¼ b Bða; b þ 1Þ; ð10Þ being a and b real nonnegative numbers.  ...

2001 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
The majority of these theories were from the social sciences (45.4%), followed by IS (29.9%), the sciences (19.3%), and humanities (5.4%). New IS theories were proposed by 71 authors.  ...  When compared with previous studies, our results suggest an increase in the use of theory within IS.  ...  Acknowledgments This research received the Association for Library and Information Science Education's 1999 Research Award.

Zipf's, Heaps' and Taylor's laws are determined by the expansion into the adjacent possible [article]

Francesca Tria, Vittorio Loreto, Vito D. P. Servedio
2018 Entropy   pre-print
Many modeling schemes have been proposed in literature to explain those laws, but only recently a modeling framework has been introduced that accounts for the emergence of those laws without deducing the  ...  This modeling framework is based on the concept of adjacent possible space and its key feature of being dynamically restructured while its boundaries get explored, i.e., conditional to the occurrence of  ...  V.D.P.S. is grateful to M.
