We examine the role of count conservation when derived network matrices are obtained from linked network matrices using an outer product decomposition. It is seen that a full counting operation conserves the count of pathways between nodal variables while a fractional counting operation conserves the count of the nodal variable. We use the cases of co-referencing (bibliographic coupling) and co-citation with a simple citation network to illustrate the ideas.
