The relative importance of scientific articles is always of interest. As
part of a look back over the last 20 years, the Centre for Science and
Technology Studies (CWTS) at the University of Leiden, The Netherlands, was
asked to use the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) information and
to provide a list of the most highly cited papers published in Free Radical
Biology & Medicine since the journal started.

In the period from when the journal started 20 years ago until the end of
2004, a total of 7,354 papers and editorials were published, attracting a
total of 82,229 citations.

Below are listed the 100 highest ranked papers over this period, with
title, authors, abstracts and keywords for the top 50 papers and title and
authors for the remaining 50 papers. There is also a link through into
ScienceDirect to access the abstracts of the remaining papers, and also the
full papers, if your institute subscribes.

The ranking is based on the total of all of the citings, totalled over the
period since publication. The most highly cited paper, by Hermann
Esterbauer et al., for example, received almost 1400 citations to date, as
per the 2004 data, made available in June 2005.

Members of the Society for Free Radical Biology and Medicine (SFRBM) may
also access these past papers plus all of the rest of the entire back-
volume collection by using their society username and password within the
ScienceDirect Society Service.
