Thomson Scientific Analyzes 10 Years of Geology Research To Rank The Most-Cited Published Papers
In a press release of August 9, 2007, Thomson Scientific analyzes 10 Years of Geology Research. The results of the study point out that larger institutions generally tend to have higher total citations and that is quite obvious since they publish more articles. Among the top 10 most highly cited institutions, six are located in the United States (first is the US Geological Survey with 23,172 citations), the others in China, France, Russia and the United Kingdom, each having been cited more than 11,000 times.
The press release reports the most cited authors in geosciences as well as the most cited journals where Geology ranks first with 116,069 citations.
