[Objective] To examine the ties between properties of scholarly papers and the number of citations they received. [Methods] First, we adopted various measurements to reduce the influence of irrelevant factors. Second, we drew trending lines to analyze the relationship between the target properties and the number of citations for a period of three years. [Results] There was positive correlation between some properties, such as the numbers of authors, pages and references, as well as the length of abstract, and the number of citations. In the meantime, there is no relationship between the number of keywords and the number of citations. The titles posed mixed effects to the number of citations. [Limitations] All samples were collected from the SCIE database in the fields of Engineering and Mechanical. We might not be able to get similar results from other areas. [Conclusions] Specific properties of the paper pose positive effects to the number of citations.
