Dear Colleagues,
To remove any misunderstanding concerning the point raised by Loet (see
below), the following short comment. In Eq. 1 of our paper the elements (i)
in the summation in the numerator obviously concern the same elements as in
the denomitator, by definition. The elements are the publications of any
kind of entity (e.g., group, institute, university, country). In the
numerator the number of citations received by each of the elements i are
totalled, and in the nominator we have the sum of the expected values of the
same elements i. So both summations concern exactly the same set, and thus
the total size of the summation is the same for the denominator and the
nominator, which is n.
Best regards,
Ton van Raan
