    • ...Thus, the number of co-authors (Leimu and Koricheva 2005 )a nd the extent of scientific collaboration (Figg et al. 2006) have been characterised as significant factors associated with higher citation rates, and this association with the number of co-authors has been ascribed to network size (Leimu and Koricheva 2005)...

    • ...As Herbertz (1995) showed, a greater number of authors are associated with a greater number of self-citations of a publication (see also Leimu & Koricheva, 2005)...

    • ...Leimu & Koricheva (Leimu and Koricheva 2005a, b) and Borsuk et al. (Borsuk et al. 2009) discussed numerous other explanatory variables related to citation frequency of articles in ecology (see Table 1). If citation frequency is biased by other factors unrelated to scientific relevance, thus this metric cannot be regarded as an objective and impartial tool for academic evaluation (Leimu and Koricheva 2005a)...

    • ...However, the literature is full of divergent opinions about biases in citation, highlighting the great interest about the issue (Garfield 1972; Leimu and Koricheva 2005a, b; Borsuk et al. 2009; Lortie et al. 2007; Ball 2008)...
    • ...Especially in ecology, most studies evaluating the effects of explanatory variables (which are usually interpreted as indicators of biasing factors) on citation frequency have drawn their conclusions based on a relatively small number of articles (Leimu and Koricheva 2005a, b). An evaluation based on a large dataset comprising of articles from different ecological journals could reliably elucidate the relative importance of candidate ...
    • ...Coefficients of determination found in previous studies based on small datasets were similar to those found by us (Leimu and Koricheva 2005a, b). However, their conclusions were mainly based on null-hypothesis significance tests...
    • ...In fact, variables such as ‘‘study outcome’’ (i.e., supporting or not a hypothesis) and ‘‘research approach’’ (methodological, empirical or experimental) have been identified as important determinants of citation (Leimu and Koricheva 2005a; Bhandari et al. 2007)...
    • ...The type of publication (e.g., reviews, research articles, letters, notes) and the article length presumably affect citation frequency and are not considered indicators of publication quality (see Table 1). However, reviews can be more cited simply because they summarize relevant information and stimulate further research in a scientific field, and longer articles possibly contain more information, which can be useful to other studies (Leimu ...
    • ...Nonetheless, previous studies suggesting biases in citation frequency barely considered the possibility that the relationship between explanatory variables and citation can actually be a consequence of the merit of highly cited articles, with some exceptions (Leimu and Koricheva 2005a; Borsuk et al. 2009)...
    • ...We believe, however, that the coefficients of determination reported here and in other studies (Leimu and Koricheva 2005a, b; Borsuk et al. 2009) cannot be considered high enough to assert that citation frequency is mainly determined by the explanatory variables used...
