Abstract
This study measures author productivity and citation frequency in the Proceedings of the Oklahoma Academy of Science (POAS). Productivity is defined as the number of times an author published an article in POAS between 1921 and 2000. Citation frequency is the number of times a POAS article or author was cited in other journals between 1974 and 2000, as indexed in the citation database SciSearch. Author productivity approximated an inverse square distribution, as did citation frequency, as predicted by Lotka’s Law of bibliometrics. Seventy-two percent of authors published once in POAS, while 1 percent of authors published 16 or more articles. Seventy-five percent of POAS authors were not cited, while 1 percent of authors were cited 9 or more times. Productive authors were not necessarily highly cited. Authors receiving the most citations per article published infrequently, but produced a highly cited article. The research has implications for bibliometric research methodology, for understanding state and regional scientific communication, and for measuring changes in citation rates since publication of POAS online. © 2004 Oklahoma Academy of Science
