A medical journal editor has made the following request:
In the past I have written that the average number of
co-authors per article in clinical research had reached 2 around
1955, and had been growing exponentially for the entire century.
I was challenged to produce a graph.
I seem to remember Derek de Solla Price having published just
such a graph
On the other hand, that was then, and I'd like something
more modern. Do you have a good reference to such a figure.
If you recall such published data especially for clinical research I
will be glad to forward the information. Thanks in advance. Gene
When responding, please attach my original message
