The purpose of this paper is to clarify the characteristics of publications in the field of Japanese literature.
On the basis of results of a case study of 13 researchers of Japanese literature, 202 books and 223 journal articles are analyzed to verify the difference in the average age of researchers publishing each publication.
The results are as follows:
(1) the average age of researchers publishing books is 54.4, those publishing journal articles is 48.7, the difference being approximately 6 years;
(2) the average age of researchers publishing articles in university bulletins is 50.0, articles in bulletins of the school of Japanese literature is 47.3, articles in journals of learned societies is 48.9, and articles in journals of commercial publishers is 46.7. The greatest difference in average age is 4 years between university bulletins and journals of commercial publishers.
Based on these findings, this paper examines how the characteristics of these publications reflect the difference of the average age of researchers publishing each publication.
