Table 3 The left entry of each cell indicates P(toppaper|topmetric) , i.e. the fraction of papers belonging to the top x % successful papers, given that their authors have top x % centrality metrics. The right entry of each cell indicates P(toppaper|topmetric) , i.e. the fraction of papers that have authors which are within the set of authors with top x % centrality metrics, given that the papers are within the top x % successful papers. Row Intersection indicates the intersection of all the above considered centrality metrics.
