Abstract

The growth of an academic literature in a topic area does not proceed like a flow of lava or like the waves that emanate when a stone is tossed into a smooth body of water. The progression is more like the evolving of a species or the growth of a family tree. Modem life sciences document numerous jumps in evolution, and anyone seeing a family tree knows that some branches are bare sticks, whereas others develop into diverse bodies. In short, the growth of an academic literature is bumpy, uneven, and erratic.
