Abstract

Aim: To review the notable characteristics of the 100 most cited articles in dental journals with the highest impact factor according to journal citation reports 2021 by Clarivate analytics.

Methods: From the Web of Science database, the impact factor of dental journals was collected. Then, the top 100 cited articles from the top-ranked dental journal were retrieved from the Web of Science database up to June 2021 and cross-matched with Scopus and Google scholar. The following data were gathered for each article including the number of citations, title, year of publication, authors, country and institute, study design, the strength of supporting evidence, and area of research.

Results: Journal of Clinical Periodontology (JCP) had the greatest impact factor of 8.728 in the Dentistry, Oral Surgery, and Medicine category. The 100 most cited articles in JCP were published between 1974 and 2018, with the numbers of citations ranging from 2652 to 257 (Web of Science), 2754 to 207 (Scopus), and 4965 to 344 (Google scholar). Lindhe J tops the list with 29 articles followed by Socransky SS with 15. Gothenburg University, Sweden took the leading position with 27 articles followed by Forsyth Dental Centre, United States with 12. The list was represented mainly by articles with experimental study designs and level-I evidence. Surgical periodontal therapy was the most studied thematic area.

Conclusions: Our findings reveal trends and preferences in the research component of a top-ranked journal in dentistry. There is considerable evidence of exceedingly citable articles with superior research design and a high level of evidence being published.

Keywords: Bibliometrics, citation analysis, evidence-based dentistry, impact factor, periodontitis, web of science
