Encyclopedia > Author citation (botany)

In botanical nomenclature, author citation refers to the person (or team) who "valid published" the name, i.e. first published the name while fulfilling the formal requirements.

Validation of Citation Analysis (860 words)
In their recent "Citation Content Analysis of a Botany Journal"(MacRoberts and MacRoberts,1997), the MacRoberts continue to rail about the strawman they created a decade ago to discredit citation analysis.
A recent example is the literature of apoptosis that I have recently studied with the editor of a journal in that field in spite of an exponential growth of the literature on programmed cell death, the core articles, many almost 50 years Id, are still regularly cited (Garfield and Melino, 1997).
The MacRoberts team would perform a far more relevant service were they to compile a citation index of all their historical sources and from this determine who are the most cited authors and then compare them to lists of influential authors compiled by questionnaire or focus groups.
