Note: The table ranks the most cited articles on an author basis among the JRI articles published from 1989 to 2010. The ranking represents

50 author–article combinations. “CITATION BREAKDOWN” lists authors’ nonself-citations (so that the citations to the same article might

be different for different authors). In “PAPER INFO,” “single” under the “Authors” column indicates one author on a particular article, and

“multiple” indicates more than one author on that article; “single” under the “JRI Publications” column indicates one JRI article published by a

particular author between 1989 and 2010, and “multiple” indicates more than one JRI article published during that period.

may favor some authors over others in the rankings. For this reason, we calculated total

citations per year using the year of each author’s first JRI during the sample period up

through 2014 to calculate the divisor. Table 8 reports the results of this analysis. Six of

the top 10 authors, and 34 of the top 50 authors, based on total citations are the same

authors when ranked based on average number of citations per year relative to each

author’s first JRI in the sample period. Consequently, the sensitivity of the rankings to

the year an author publishes his or her first JRI is not high.

Table 9 presents author rankings based on the most cited JRI articles during our sample

period. The ranking represents the top 50 author–article combinations, and we call it

50 authors thereafter in this context.13 Shaun Wang’s March 2000 JRI article received

the greatest number of total citations (95). To be among the top 50 authors in Table 9,

an author must have one or more articles with 38 or more total citations. David Blake,

Andrew Cairns, and Kevin Dowd each appear thrice among the top 50 authors with the

most cited JRI articles. Only one article published after 2006 is among the most cited

articles. Only five of the top 50 authors with the most cited JRI articles have one author, a

much lower proportion than the overall frequency of JRI articles with one author (about

29 percent) suggesting that coauthored articles are cited at a substantially higher rate.

For 13 of the top 50 authors with the most cited JRI articles, it is their only JRI article

during the sample period.
