Paper Abstract

This paper examines the primary scientific output from a number of telescopes, which is the collection of papers published in refereed journals based on data from each telescope. A telescope's productivity is measured by the number of papers published, while its scientific impact is the sum of each individual paper’s impact as measured quantitatively by the number of citations that the paper receives. In this paper I will examine the productivity and impact of 27 telescopes, mainly optical/IR, for the years between 2010 and 2014.
