Details

The data set scPublications includes bibliographic information about publications related to structural change and obtained from the ‘ISI Web of Science’. The query was based on the ‘Science Citation Index Expanded’ and ‘Social Sciences Citation Index’ (for the full range of years available: 1900-2006 and 1956-2006, respectively). The ‘Source Title’ was restricted to the 27 journals in the data frame and the ‘Topic’ to be one of the following: structural change, structural break, structural stability, structural instability, parameter instability, parameter stability, parameter constancy, change point, changepoint, change-point, breakpoint, break-point, break point, CUSUM, MOSUM. Additionally, the famous CUSUM paper of Brown, Durbin and Evans (1975) was added manually to scPublications (because it did not match the query above).
