Abstract:The phenomenon of delayed recognition in scientific discoveries is enjoying an ever increasing attention, as it is seen of potential scientific and even commercial values. This poster firstly reviews the performance of existing approaches in measuring the phenomenon of delayed recognition, and then tries to find a new perspective to better understand it. Literature review shows defects in terms of applicability, reasonability and complexity in currently existing approaches, as well as the usefulness of two measures in this study. Specifically, correlation analysis on the two measures suggests a high positive correlation between them, and formula derivation further uncovers a decisive common term in their equations. Based on the logic behind this common term, the idea of weighted summation of yearly citations is suggested to quantify how much a single paper’s citations are delayed, but there still lacks empirical studies.
