Empirical Regularities in the Market for Real Estate Research Output
This study examines whether any regularity exists in the publication pattern among real estate researchers. Identifying an empirical regularity in research output is useful since it helps assess both the likelihood of multiple publications and the degree of author concentration among different journals. The empirical results reveal that a strong bibliometric regularity exists in the real estate literature: the number of authors publishing n papers is approximately 1/n^c of those publishing one paper. It is shown that the real estate literature conforms very well to the model with c=2.446 if data are taken from a large collection of journals. When applied to individual journals, the result shows that values of c range from 2.321 to 3.835.
