he discovery of high-temperature superconductors, the determination of DNA's double-helix structure , the first observations that the expansion of the Universe is accelerating — all of these breakthroughs won Nobel prizes and international acclaim. Yet none of the papers that announced them comes anywhere close to ranking among the 100 most highly cited papers of all time. Citations, in which one paper refers to earlier works, are the standard means by which authors acknowledge the source of… 

Using h-cores to study the most-cited articles of the twenty-first century

The aim of this paper is to collect the most-cited articles of the twenty-first century and to study how this group changed over time, followed by stating that the notions of h-cores and h-core scores provide a new perspective on leading countries, articles and scientists.

The Most-Cited Articles of the 21st Century

The aim of this paper is to collect the most-cited articles of the 21 century and to study how this group changed over time by considering yearly h-cores in the Web of Science.

The 100 Most Cited Papers About Cancer Epigenetics

Citation count is used to identify those papers in the scientific literature that have made key contributions in the field of cancer epigenetics and identify key driving forces behind future investigations.

The 100 Most Influential Studies in Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell: A Bibliometric Analysis

By evaluating the top 100 most-cited papers in the CAR-T field, this study provides insight into the direction of the scientific growth and its trends, as well as information on the field's network structure.

Citing a Data Repository: A Case Study of the Protein Data Bank

A novel metric based on information cascade constructed by exploring the citation network to measure influence between competing works is described and applied to analyze different data citation practices to PDB.

Large-scale analysis of micro-level citation patterns reveals nuanced selection criteria

This study provides a quantitative approach to addressing the long-standing issue that not all citations count the same, by studying the usage of citations throughout the full text of 156,558 articles published by the Public Library of Science and tracing their bibliometric history from among 60 million records obtained from the Web of Science.

Antibiotics: A Bibliometric Analysis of Top 100 Classics

This bibliometric analysis aimed to identify and analyze the 100 most-cited publications in the field of antibiotics and to highlight the trends of research in this field.

The 100 Top-Cited Studies on Dyslexia Research: A Bibliometric Analysis

This analysis provides a better understanding on dyslexia and may help doctors, researchers, and stakeholders to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of classic studies, new discoveries, and trends regarding this research field, thus promoting ideas for future investigation.

The 100 most influential studies in CAR-T: a bibliometric analysis

The scientific landscape of chimeric antigen receptors T-cells (CAR-T) research is mapped with bibliometric and network analysis to provide insight into areas for future development.



Helical microtubules of graphitic carbon

THE synthesis of molecular carbon structures in the form of C60 and other fullerenes1 has stimulated intense interest in the structures accessible to graphitic carbon sheets. Here I report the

The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters.

Revised effective ionic radii and systematic studies of interatomic distances in halides and chalcogenides

The effective ionic radii of Shannon & Prewitt [Acta Cryst. (1969), B25, 925-945] are revised to include more unusual oxidation states and coordinations. Revisions are based on new structural data,

Density-functional thermochemistry. III. The role of exact exchange

Despite the remarkable thermochemical accuracy of Kohn–Sham density‐functional theories with gradient corrections for exchange‐correlation [see, for example, A. D. Becke, J. Chem. Phys. 96, 2155

The neighbor-joining method: a new method for reconstructing phylogenetic trees.

The neighbor-joining method and Sattath and Tversky's method are shown to be generally better than the other methods for reconstructing phylogenetic trees from evolutionary distance data.

Basic local alignment search tool.

Self-Consistent Equations Including Exchange and Correlation Effects

From a theory of Hohenberg and Kohn, approximation methods for treating an inhomogeneous system of interacting electrons are developed. These methods are exact for systems of slowly varying or high

Improved methods for building protein models in electron density maps and the location of errors in these models.

Map interpretation remains a critical step in solving the structure of a macromolecule. Errors introduced at this early stage may persist throughout crystallographic refinement and result in an

CLUSTAL W: improving the sensitivity of progressive multiple sequence alignment through sequence weighting, position-specific gap penalties and weight matrix choice.

The sensitivity of the commonly used progressive multiple sequence alignment method has been greatly improved and modifications are incorporated into a new program, CLUSTAL W, which is freely available.
