Recognition of outstanding papers by staff and students of SOMS was initiated in 2004 by the award of Citation Classic.

Criteria for selection
  • Paper which receives 50 or more citations in main medical journal indexes including Web of Science, Scopus or Google Scholar eover any consecutive 5 years in the last 10 years
  • Eligible papers should be submitted by the first or senior author
  • Paper must be based primarily on research undertaken in SOMS
  • The first or senior author must be a member of SOMS (as staff or student) at the time of the submission.
  • Reviews are not eligible

Submissions require the following information; 

Journal: Name
Authors: names.
