This was my first comment. One should have taken rank-order correlations
instead of Pearson correlations. The result based on Table 1 of the article
are highly significant :-).

I added total citations as a third variable because somewhere in this
conversation someone raised the idea that the PageRank would correlate with
total citations. This is not the case.

With best wishes,
