The 40 most highly cited papers of All Time (1982 edition)

Keep in mind that citation counts can never be exact, there is something like a 5% error in most of these numbers. Please do not fret about number 32 versus 33, as this is often not a statistically significant difference. More information about citations in INSPIRE can be found here.

Actual citation numbers in the database may change as corrections are made and papers are added, the links will take you to the updated numbers.
