Title:The Evolution of Scientific Productivity of Junior Scholars
Author(s):Tsai, Chun-Hua; Lin, Yu-Ru
Subject(s):data analytics and evaluation
informetrics and scholarly communication
Abstract:Publishing academic work has been recognized as a key indicator for measuring scholars’ scientific productivity and having crucial impact on their future career. However, little has been known about how the majority of researchers progress in publishing papers across disciplines. In this work, using a collection consisting of over five millions academic publications across 15 disciplines, we study how the scientific productivity patterns of junior scholars change across different generations and different domains. Our study results help understand the evolution of the competitive “publish or perish” academic culture.
