Csako G. 2007. Analysis of the most highly cited articles from the 50-year history of CCA. Clinica Chimica Acta. 375(1-2):43-48.
This article describes the analysis of the most highly cited articles from CCA’s history. Lists are all based on the ISI/Thomson Scientific database and the country of origin identified by a PubMed search. A significant positive correlation was found between the total number of citations and the date of publication of the cited articles, with the most highly cited articles appearing at least 8–16 years following their publication. It is concluded that these results may assist in editorial policy-making and marketing decisions and in assessing the impact of individual countries on the field, as well as guiding authors' decisions when in submitting articles.
