Abstract
Based on LUC evaluation data we investigate the citation output of single-authored articles versus the output of articles with two or more collaborators. This is done for articles published in journals covered by ISI, and for all other articles (published in non-ISI journals, in conference proceedings or in edited books).

We further compare citation results for collaborations within the university, within the country and with scientists from abroad.
