London – Zitierungen sind die wichtigsten Währungen in der Wissenschaft. Eine Arbeit ist umso wichtiger, je öfter sie zitiert wird. Nun haben britische Forscher 140.000 zwischen 2007 und 2013 erschienene Artikel danach untersucht, ob die Länge des Titels sich womöglich auf die Zitierungen auswirkt, und entdeckten im Fachblatt "Open Science tatsächlich einen Zusammenhang: Kürzere Titel bringen mehr Zitierungen. Der Effekt ist freilich nicht allzu stark.

Die fünf kürzesten Titel, die in der Studie Berücksichtigung fanden:

1) "Myopia" (The Lancet)

2) "Prions" (Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives In Biology)

3) "Measles" (The Lancet)

4) und 5) "GenBank" (Nucleic Acids Research)

Die fünf längsten Titel:

1) "AMG145, a monoclonal antibody against proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9, significantly reduces lipoprotein(a) in hypercholesterolemic patients receiving statin therapy: An analysis from the LDL-C assessment with proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type 9 monoclonal antibody inhibition combined with statin therapy (LAPLACE)-thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) 57 Trial" (Circulation)

2) "2011 ACCF/AHA/HRS focused updates incorporated into the ACC/AHA/ESC 2006 Guidelines for the management of patients with atrial fibrillation: A report of the American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines developed in partnership with the European Society of Cardiology and in collaboration with the European Heart Rhythm Association and the Heart Rhythm Society" (Journal of the American College Of Cardiology)
