Identify most cited author(s)
Is there an easy way to sort my Zotero library according to the authors who are most prevalent? In other words, I want to quickly identify which author has the most references (citations) within my library without any a priori knowledge of who that individual is. I would prefer a sorted list of authors, but the most common author would be a start.
And I would add 'Identify my most cited papers'. Are there papers that appear in several references of the papers I have read? Are papers cited by other of my papers?
On the one hand, I would like to evaluate the literature I have read, according to whether it is frequently cited by other papers.
I want to read papers that are often cited as references from my previous read papers.
I want to know authors who have co-written many of the papers I've read in order to read their other papers.
I have all the papers in PDF format and can also remove attachments.
There's a plugin to look up google scholar citation counts listed here: https://www.zotero.org/support/plugins
And a different one using CrossRef data (which is less complete but provides a more robust query interface) here: https://twitter.com/eschnett/status/1310753315584708610
To analyze things like author counts, currently the only way is to export to .csv and use the statistical tool of your choice.
