Counting the Number of Highly Cited Papers

The aim of this study is to propose a simple method to count the number of highly cited papers. To illustrate the method, literature on the field of tribology covered in Science Citation Index Expanded of Web of Science published during 2001 – 2010 is used. As tribology is highly multidisciplinary in nature, which can be demonstrated by the proposed method, the method can be used for other subject disciplines.
