Abstract: A partial view of the Matthew effect in science asserts that the (already) most recognized scientists are those who (more easily) gain greater recognition for their scientific contributions. A full view of that effect naturally adds to the (comparative) advantages of the most recognized scientists, the (comparative) disadvantages of lesser-recognized scientists. The purpose of this report is to present one of the simplest explanations of the Matthew effect in science, which, as it is also very general, can explain the existence of that effect in other areas where inequality is manifested.
