Contribution of Turkish Scholars to Earthquake Literature: The Impact of the Marmara Earthquake
This paper addresses the question of whether the Marmara Earthquake of August 17, 1999, has had an impact on the contribution of Turkish scholars to the earthquake literature. We identified a total of 1,098 papers published between 1990 and 2009 by Turkish earthquake scientists. These papers were cited 7,691 times. Both the number of papers and the citations they generated increased considerably after the Marmara Earthquake. This may be explained, in part, by the increase in the number of projects being carried out since then to study the Marmara Sea basin.
