The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between the authorship and the citation impact. To illustrate this, articles in the field of tri-bology covered in Science Citation Index Expanded are used as sample. Authorship pattern, number of authors per article, percentage of authorships in decades, comparison of CPP, and uncitedness have been studied in this article. The result shows that 345% increase in the number of authors per article has been observed from 1963 to 2014 and co-authored articles receive more citations than single authored articles. Since the tribology is a highly interdisciplinary field, the results of this study can be considered as a proxy.
