                                     An interview with:
   The Most-Cited Papers in Materials Science, 1996-2006




              his month, in-cites presents a listing of the top 20 papers
              which, as of the third bimonthly update of Essential Science
              Indicators (January 1, 1996-June 30, 2006), attracted the
       highest total citations in the field of Materials Science. These papers
       are the top 20 out of a pool of 3,401 papers comprising the top 1% as
       determined by citation threshold calculations for this field.

The Materials Science category deals with journals covering the admixtures of
matter or the basic materials from which products are constructed, including:

      ceramics
      paper and wood products
      polymers
      textiles
      composites
      coatings & films
      biomaterials
      metals and alloys
      metallurgy
      application of chemistry to materials design and testing
      superconductors and semiconductors
      ferroelectrics
      dielectrics
