Citation Classics Commentaries

Between 1977 and 1993, Eugene Garfield has chosen, each week, one of the most cited articles, an article that has become a classic in its field, and asked a commentary to the author. The idea was to uncover the human side of scientific papers. Authors were invited to write about interesting aspects of their work, the contributions of co-authors or the difficulties they had to overcome during the development of their work. These Citation Classics Commentaries, jointly with a synopsis of the work, can be found here (source: CHMINF-L).
