A bibliometric study on the most cited scientific papers in biomedicine produced in Spain over fifteen years (1997-2011 inclusive) presents an analysis of nearly 190,000 documents published in this field, of which 2,514 (1.3%) achieved the category of "Highly Cited Papers".
The study specifically examines the "Highly Cited Papers" (HCP), i.e. the scientific papers written by authors resident in Spain that are in the 1% of the most cited studies in the world among those in the same year of publication and discipline. The HCP are the scientific publications that have achieved the most impact and visibility among fellow scientists around the world.
The study, supervised by Dr. Jordi Camí, a Professor of Pharmacology at the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences at Pompeu Fabra University, in collaboration with the BAC team of the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation (FCRI) and the Catalan Health Quality and Evaluation Agency, is available online at: http://www.fundaciorecerca.cat/topcited
