Description Usage Format References

Description

Small example dataset with 2 publications. The first publication references rather dissimilar disciplines and has uncategorized references. Therefore, the computation of the interval of uncertainty of the Rao-Stirling index requires longer computation time. The dataset contains the following information: A matrix of counts of referenced disciplines for each publication, a vector of counts of uncategorized references in each publication, and a matrix that contains a measure of similarity between disciplines.
