Dear colleagues,

Is there a positive correlation between the length of a reference list of a
publication and the number of citations received? Is this true (or not) in
general, i.e. considering all types of publication? And what if one only
considers 'normal articles', this is when reviews and letters (and other short
communications) are not taken into account?

Can someone point me to a reference?
