output (measured in the quantity of papers) is sufficient to explain the increased rate of production; however, this would seem to mask a possible decline in quality. Another thing that could also be expected in this kind of scenario is a decrease in

), enabling a series of spin-off activities, such as UMC (established in 1980), TSMC (set up in 1987), Taiwan Mask Corporation (established in 1988), and Vanguard International Semiconductor (founded in 1994), which in turn facilitate and reinforce the
diversity of sizes in such a way that no particular size-side effects should mask the main results of our analysis at least for moderate and large countries, although it is arguable that the averaging process copes with the problem in the case of very small
the A -index, as it is defined, evaluates the scientist's production as it was always uniformly distributed, thus masking the different citation distributions of the authors.
Still considering the total number of citations in the h -core, the
level might mask variations in price elasticity across regions, so we use regional-level data to fix the relationship between tuition and enrollment. Essentially, we estimate a regional-level model that provides the “average” relationship between
