Title:How are academic articles cited over time?
Author(s):Guo, Chun; Milojević, Staša; Liu, Xiaozhong
Subject(s):informetrics and scholarly communication
Abstract:Few studies have focused on understanding the changing relationship between the cited work and the works that cite it. In this study we use publications from the ACM Digital Library published between 1980 and 1989 to follow their citation patterns over the thirty-year period (till 2010). We focus on how these trends differ for articles that are highly cited with respect to those that are not. The analyses are based on pairwise title similarity and similarity measures computed from the heterogeneous paper graph, including papers, authors, venues, and topics as nodes. We find that in general as the time passes the citing papers become more dissimilar from the cited paper. Furthermore, highly cited papers get cited by topically more distant papers in all time periods. However, they tend to share venues more than the other groups. In addition, they are less cited by collaborators than less cited papers.
