Abstract:The researchers systematically examined authorship patterns of feature articles and brief communications in the Journal of the American Society for Information Science (JASIS), a leading professional publication in its field, from 1970 to 1996. Characteristics of authors, as opposed to the content of the journal and the domain of information science, serve as the focus of the study. Data on gender, academic or other professional affiliation, geographic location, and frequency of authorship were drawn from the JASIS articles themselves and tabulated both by individual years and over the entire span of the study. The study sought quantitative evidence of changing authorship patterns and the findings are explained in relation to previous authorship studies.
