The researchers report that since 1990, the share of references to older articles has increased by 28%. Business, Economics & Management journals increased their share by 56%, and Computer Science by 39%. In contrast, Chemical & Material Sciences and Engineering both increased their share by just 2% and 3%, respectively.
