- Certain key questions in Scientometrics can only be answered by following a statistical approach. This paper illustrates this point for the following question: how similar are citation distributions with a fixed, common citation window for every science in a static context, and how similar are they when the citation process of a given cohort of papers is modeled in a dynamic context?.
- citation distributions; characteristic scores and scales; power law distribution; lognormal distribution; log-location-scale family of distributions; panel models; multivariate models
