The dc voltage versus current measurements of a YBa2Cu3O7-δ film in a magnetic field was shown to collapse onto scaling functions. Results showed that for a wide range of critical exponents and temperatures, a good data collapse was achieved. A criterion was proposed to determine if the data collapse was valid.
