Sample text

The English–Canadian psychologist George Sidney Brett and Belgian psychologist Ovide Jean Decroly are two others with the same level of productivity as Dennis, and with about the same degree of historical obscurity. Perhaps the minimal criterion for psychological greatness is to have published more than Dennis, Brett, and Decroly. Yet this solution faces two objections. First, there exist ample numbers of great psychologists—such as Anna Freud, Leta Hollingworth, Pierre Janet, and Karl L. Lashley—who might not satisfy this productivity criterion.

On the contrary, the same skewed distribution holds for other sciences as well as for the arts and humanities (Huber, 1999; Simonton, 1999b). 75 Note.

In Group IV, for instance, there were 229 psychologists, implying that 15 would account for half of all the publications. Yet the top decile, which consists of 23 psychologists, can claim only 37% of the total. 2. The Lotka law, formulated by Alfred Lotka (1926), an eminent population geneticist, claims that the number of scientists who claim n publications is inversely proportional to the square of n. Expressed more formally, ƒ (n) = c n – 2, where c is a constant that varies according the discipline and other factors.
