Abstract

The researchers determined that while additional journals have been added to the Motlon Index, the authors who write a large number of articles remains the same. In addition, this study finds that there is a substantial similarity between authors who are frequently cited by others and the number of articles that have been published by these authors. Additionally, the most frequently published authors of journal articles also have an average of more than five books in print. The number of articles listed increased by 1,154 between 1990 and 1995. Authors increased in each category (rangingfrom one to more than 20). The vast majority of those who have published more than 28 articles listed in the Index teach in doctoral-granting departments.
