Ernst Wynder: Citation analysis

Stellman, Steven D.

Ernst Wynder published nearly 800 papers during his lifetime. I used the ISI Web of ScienceĀ® to analyze his publications and the subsequent literature citing his work. More than half of his papers were published in just ten journals, including Cancer, Preventive Medicine (which he founded and edited), JNCI, and Cancer Research. The 87 papers in Cancer covered all of the major cancer sites including breast, colon, lung, and prostate, and many others. Twenty-five papers and one book were cited in over 200 publications. His publications included 441 co-authors from a broad range of scientific disciplines.

From Steven Stellman: This is the second of two papers that I was invited to contribute to a special issue of Preventive Medicine devoted to its founder and former editor-in-chief, Ernst Wynder (the first was a "remembrance" of my time working with him). I was honored to have this opportunity to document the remarkable scientific output of this highly influential figure.
