Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


By considering the citation distribution for 257 022 papers in the SPIRES database, the homogeneity of topologies in the categories of theory, experiment, and phenomenology, was demonstrated. Furthermore, the resulting dataset is well described by a simple power law with different exponents in the low- and high-citation regions. The most striking features of the data include the extremely large number of minimally cited papers and the fact that a remarkably small number of papers (4%) account for half of the citations in the dataset.
