Abstract

The Geological Society of America Bulletin was an early home for quantitative geomorphology research. Though geomorphology papers are not uniformly the highest cited papers in the Bulletin, many show ‘delayed recognition’ —they garner only few citations directly after publication, before suddenly being widely and numerously cited (sometimes decades after publication). I focus here on 1) algorithmically detecting cases of delayed recognition in geomorphology literature from the Bulletin and 2) providing insight into why delayed recognition occurred for these papers.
