The publication credit allocation problem is one of the fundamental problems in bibliometrics. There are two solutions which do not use any additional information: equal weights measure and the Shapley value. The paper justifies the equal weights measure by showing equivalence with the Shapley value approach for sharing co-authors performance in specific games.
We present two ways (instantaneous and cumulative) to transform bibliographic networks, using the works’ publication year, into corresponding temporal networks based on temporal quantities. We also show how to use the addition of temporal quantities to define interesting temporal properties of nodes, links and their groups thus providing an insight into evolution of bibliographic networks. Using the multiplication of temporal networks we obtain different derived temporal networks providing us with new views on studied networks. The proposed approach is illustrated with examples from the collection of bibliographic networks on peer review.
