" A bibliometric analysis of observatory publications for the period 2009-2013 "

Dennis Crabtree


The primary scientific output from an astronomical telescope is the collection of papers published in refereed journals. A telescope's productivity is measured by the number of papers published which are based upon data taken with the telescope. The scientific impact of a paper can be measured quantitatively by the number of citations that the paper receives. In this paper I will examine the productivity and impact of over 25 telescopes, mainly optical/IR, with apertures larger than 3.5-m for the years between 2009 and 2013. I will also examine how the telescopes are connected via their publications as well as the productivity and impact of individual instruments for several telescopes

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
