Have you looked at the following URL listing a half-dozen or so essays on this topic.

I haven't followed them up with a search of the Web of Science but I don't see or har much talk anymore about predicting or forecasting Nobel Prizes.

Hi Gretchen and all,

I had such good luck on my previous query to the list regarding current
work on citation analysis in law that I thought I'd try another question.
Does anyone know of current work in progress regarding the prediction of
Nobel prizes through citation analysis? I know there was work on this in
the late 70s, but haven't kept up-to-date on it.

Any response on or off the list would be much appreciated!
