Bornmann, L. (in press). Nature’s top 100 revisited. Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology

Recently, Van Noorden, Maher, and Nuzzo (2014) published a list of papers which are among the 100 most highly cited papers of all time. This letter argues that such a list should not be produced on the base of bare citation counts, but normalized bibliometric indicators – the standard in bibliometrics.
