ctmaPub

Description

Compute publication and citation scores for studies based on the (team of) authors' publication scores .

Usage

ctmaPub(
  getPubObj = NULL,
  primaryStudyList = NULL,
  yearsToExclude = 0,
  recency = 5,
  targetYear = NULL,
  indFUN = "sum",
  colFUN = "mean",
  addAsMod = FALSE
)

Arguments

getPubObj

publication information compiled with ctmaGetPub

primaryStudyList

vector with numbers of studies (e.g., c(1,3); requires source1 and source3 to be available)

yearsToExclude

years to exclude from publications

recency

years before targetYear that are considered for recency analysis

targetYear

year (default = last year) after which publications are ignored

indFUN

function (default = sum) how publications of each author within a collective (team) are summarized

colFUN

function (default = mean) how publications all authors of collective (team) are summarized

addAsMod

currently disabled. Add to existing moderator objects (or create them) in primaryStudyList, which is part of the returned object

Value

returns NEPP (= the \*number\* of studies published by the authors of the primary studies supplied UNTIL the year when the primary study was published), NEPPRecency (like NEPP, but limited to the number of years befor the publication as specified with the recency argument), "Meaning of NEPP" and "Meaning of NEPPRecency" which explain what \*number\* exactly means (e.g., could be the mean of the sum of each author's publication, or the sum of the maximum publications per year of the authors), and "primaryStudyList(full)", which just returns the primaryStudyList supplied).

Examples


pubResults_6 <- ctmaPub(getPubObj=pubList_8,
                        primaryStudyList=CoTiMAstudyList_6)
summary(pubResults_6)
