Thomson Scientific Takes a Fresh Look at Multiauthor Papers
Date:11/27/2007

ng, editor of Science Watch. "It is important to note that we currently are able to identify some general trends. For example, the mean number of authors per Thomson Scientific indexed paper is continuing its upward trend reaching 3.8 in 2006. On the flipside, the percentage of single- authored papers continued its descent and is now at 24 percent of all published papers."

In order to convey the general makeup of recent multiauthor papers, Thomson Scientific divided the papers with more than 100 authors into two main groupings: physical sciences and biomedicine. The physical science group increased its volume by 144 in 2005 to total 393. (The majority of these papers were in the main field of physics.) Meanwhile, the number of biomedicine papers with 100 or more authors declined from 41 in 2004 to 19 in 2006.

This Science Watch study also highlights individual papers that had the highest number of authors. In 1987, a paper with 200 authors took the prize, and each year has seen the winning number increase. In 2000, the most- multiauthored paper had 918 contributors. The paper taking top honors in 2006 had 2,512 authors.
