Abstract

This bibliometric review is aimed to analyze the top 100 most-cited publications in dentistry and to compare its outcomes with similar analysis done by Feijoo et al., [1]. A literature search was performed using the Elsevier's Scopus without any restriction of language, publication year or study design. Of 336381 articles, the top 100 were included based on their citation count which ranged from 638 to 4728 citations (Feijoo et al., 326 to 2050). Most productive decade was the 2000s with 40 articles on the list (Feijoo et al., 1980s: 26). Marx RE (7%) was the major contributor in this study (Feijoo et al., Socransky SS: 9%) and a whopping 48% articles generated from the USA. 26% of top 100 articles focused periodontology (Feijoo et al., periodontology: 43%), while 17% of the total were published in the Journal of Dental Research (Feijoo et al., Journal of Clinical Periodontology: 20%). Most of the publications were narrative reviews/expert opinion (36%), (Feijoo et al., case series: 22%) and were within the evidence level V (64%) (Feijoo et al., 54%). The citation count that a paper secures is not necessarily a reflection of research's quality, however, the current analysis provides latest citation trends in dentistry.
