Goddard Author and Publication Statistics
What statistics can be found here?
The statistics include the number of publications written by authors in each Organization Code, the top journals in which Goddard Authors publish, and the most frequently published authors.
Where do they come from?
The statistics represent what is currently in the Goddard Library Repository Authors and Publications Collection.
How are they counted?
Multiple Goddard Authors may be listed on a single journal article. If there are multiple authors from Code 600, the article will only count once in the statistics for Code 600. If there are authors from both Code 500 and Code 600, the publication will count twice: once in the Code 500 statistics, and once in the Code 600 statistics. Also note that the Goddard Authors and Publications collection is not comprehensive. Please refer to the Goddard Authors homepage for information on what the collection contains.
How often are they updated?
The statistics are compiled and updated weekly
Why are there Organization Codes listed that don't exist anymore?
Since directorate realignments do occur, Codes can change over time. As much as possible, the Codes listed in the statistics represent what they were at the time of publication.
