The State of Statistical Authorship Studies in 1984
By adding this chapter on authorship problems 20 years after the original appearance of this book, we give a general idea of the state of the field, of its strengths and weaknesses, and of where some challenging problems and useful work on authorship might lie. Because whole books are now appearing in the area, we want only to portray the state and thrust of the art of authorship resolution. Although we may make an occasional critical remark, our intention is to contribute to the overall assessment, rather than to a specific study. Essentially we treat the time period since Bailey’s (1969) review paper.
