Abstract

'Discometrics', a long neglected area of informetric studies was revisited in a network context. Cooperation between jazz musicians was analysed using the recent 'Hirschian' concepts of network informetrics. Partnership Ability Index (φ) was found to be a useful measure to characterize the way performers are embedded in their partnership network. Indications of some positive relations between φ and other 'qualities' of the performers were found.
