If you have picked up the Alberta report you may have noticed that there is
no information on the number of papers that were used for the analysis.  I
just wrote to the evaluation department and was told there 25 papers for
each subject area.  Not a large sample but adequate given the selection
process.  I'm thinking of making a similar kind of comparison with some
biology papers so hope it proves useful!
