Statistician Coauthorship and Citation

We study statisician coauthorship and citation in a few phases. In Phase I, we collected the data set for  3248 papers published between 2002 and 2012 in Annals of Statistics (AoS), Biometrika,  Journal of American Statistical Association (JASA) and Journal of Royal Statistical Society (Series B)  (JRSS-B).  In Phase II, we collected data set for about 70,000 papers published between 1976 and 2015 in 36 journals in statistics and related fields.
