Ocean acidification papers among the most cited in Nature Climate Change

Since the journal Nature Climate Change was launched 3 years ago, two ocean acidification papers are among the most cited ones: Fabricius et al. (2011)
and Rodolfo-Metalpa et al. (2011).

Excerpt from the editorial:

“Nature Climate Change publishes across the climate change disciplines and it is pleasing that papers from all fields are being recognized in the scientific community. Our most cited paper is about coral reefs and ocean acidification6, with another marine ecology paper — ‘Coral and mollusc resistance to ocean acidification adversely affected by warming’7 — also being well cited. A top social science paper is ‘The role of social and decision sciences in communicating uncertain climate risks’8. The physical sciences are also represented, for example ‘Global radiative forcing from contrail cirrus’9 and a paper on the historical interdecadal modulation of El Niño Southern Oscillation10. Citation counts vary between the ISI Web of Science and Google Scholar due to the different coverage. As is to be expected, papers from our first year, 2011 to early 2012, dominate as they have had longer to accumulate citations.”
