Correspondent Bob has provided an interesting update on some research I did on relative publication rates back in 2010:
Just as a follow up to your Poo vs Shit analysis, a PubMed search today (11 April 2013) reveals that Shit is on the rise with 23 articles now with A. having first authorship on 7 and second on 4. That’s a 3.3-fold increase overall compared to Poo’s modest 16.9% increase from 359 to 420. As an additional modicum of irony, A. [Shit]’s articles are mostly related to BROWNian particle motions.
Shit’s fans will no doubt be pleased with these new hits.
