Struggle for Leadership
The most prolific authors in SDPD


SDPD experts form a very strange (but finally just like others) small community. Some people/groups solve structures exclusively (probably chemists), others produce new methods in large quantities (sometimes without solving structures or without making available any corresponding software - theoreticians), some publish numerous review papers, etc : frenzy for SDPD leadership ? Maybe ;-). Is research in SDPD a bit tribal ? Sure, many scottish, italian, swiss, dutch, german, english, american, russian, french (etc) clubs and sub-clubs are clearly in competition, with few permeability. A comparison with the list (number of structures - not number of papers like here) made in 1998 shows considerable changes. Are listed authors having at least 5 papers on structures solved or being (co-)author of a chapter of the SDPD book.
