Most-Cited Paper From the Top 20 Countries, 1999-August 31, 2009
Special Country Feature

Last month ScienceWatch.com presented its annual "Top 20" listings of countries (across all 22 fields), which as of the latest bimonthly update of Essential Science IndicatorsSM, achieved particular distinction based on their papers published in Thomson Reuters-indexed journals from January 1999 through August 31, 2009, a 10-year plus 8-month period. This month we present the highest-cited paper from each of the top 20 countries. The countries are listed below in the same order as they were last month–by total citations. In this ranking, all of the paper's authors are based in the given country, as opposed to multinational collaborations. Only the first address is show.
