Journals with high IF get more attention, so might get "better" articles. However I am interested in finding papers published in minor journals that have a high number of citations, say >100.

I can't seem to do this search on web of science. How is this achieved?

Scopus allows you to do this. Search for the journal name and then sort by number of citations.

  • but I would like to do a global search perhaps by doing a double sort IF and n of citations. Mar 4, 2015 at 17:54
  • I think you can do this in Scopus (see the "compare journals" option). It uses a slightly different metric since impact factor is privately owned.
