Figure 3.

Average rate of publication (publications/day) of disease-specific research fields with various levels of involvement in cooperative research (defined by the ICS). From this figure it is clear that two genetically related diseases publish more often when cross-referencing their gene discoveries (diabetes mellitus and obesity), than when working independently (autism and ADHD) (r2=0.7931).
