Abstract
One of the first bibliometric laws appeared in Alfred J. Lotka's 1926 examination of author productivity in chemistry and physics. The result was a productivity distribution described by a power law. In this paper, Lotka's original data on author productivity in chemistry are reconsidered. We define a discrete power law with exponential cutoff, test Lotka's data, and compare the fit to the discrete power law.
