(15 June 2017) Scholarly research is often about the latest findings – the newest knowledge that our colleagues have gleaned from nature. Some articles buck this pattern and have impact long after their publication.
Today, Google Scholar is releasing Classic Papers, a collection of highly-cited papers in their area of research that have stood the test of time. For each area, Google lists the ten most-cited articles that were published ten years earlier.
This release of classic papers consists of articles that were published in 2006 and is based on Google’s index as it was in May 2017. To browse classic papers, select one of the broad areas and then select the specific research field of your interest. For example, Agronomy & Crop Science, Oil, Petroleum & Natural Gas, and African Studies & History.
