We propose a method for estimating the parameters of the K- distribution on a manner which significantly reduces computational requirements when compared with existing approaches. additionaly, the method yields paramter estimates with lower variance when compared with standard techniques.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
