Abstract:

The field of Academic Writing is analyzed from a network perspective combined with a game theoretical approach by using co-authorship networks and the Shapley value concept. The Shapley value of each author indicates its average marginal collaboration potential. Results obtained on data from 2015 to 2019 offer interesting insights in the publication trends of the academic writing community.

The co-authorship network of year 2016, with red color the three authors with the highest Shapley value are presented (isolated nodes are not presented in this figure)
