The mathematical review system: does reviewer status play a role in the citation process?
The research hypothesis is that the cognitive authority of a high status reviewer plays a positive role in how well a new article is received and cited by others, and opens the door for comparisons to other editorial review systems, such as book reviews written in the social sciences or humanities.

It is argued that scientific fame and impact exists on a continuum from the mundane to the transformative/revolutionary and that upcoming psychologists would do well to understand that success is not equal to fame and that individual career success isnot necessarily the same as disciplinary success.


Measuring knowledge transfer between fields of science
This paper considers knowledge exchange between disciplines at a global level, by analysing cross-disciplinary citations in journal articles, based on the world publication output in 1999, and applies two measures which appear to be proper indicators of impact of research on other fields.
"Science Citation Index"--A New Dimension in Indexing.

Citation Analysis in Research Evaluation
This work focuses on assessing Basic Science Research Departments and Scientific Journals, as well as Empirical and Theoretical Chapters, and the Citation Indexes, which summarize the literature on empirical and theoretical determinants of scientific research.
Statistical mechanics of complex networks
A simple model based on these two principles was able to reproduce the power-law degree distribution of real networks, indicating a heterogeneous topology in which the majority of the nodes have a small degree, but there is a significant fraction of highly connected nodes that play an important role in the connectivity of the network.
