Citations of the 1120 Most-Cited Physicists 1981 - June 1997

This data covers all publications from ISI catalogued journals from January 1981 - June 1997 and was compiled by H. Small and D. Pendlebury of the Institute for Scientific Information. This file includes several corrections to the data originally supplied by the ISI: missing decimal points in several entries are now provided, and the data is correctly ordered according to total number of citations (a block of the original data that was provided by the ISI was not in correct rank order). Notice also that different authors with the same last name and first initial are erroneously lumped into one entry in the table (for example #12 or #397 on this list). Use this list with caution!
