One of the main goals of this blog is to inform people about the latest news in wine research area. People need to know the state-of-the-art to be able to apply that knowledge in their works on the way to evolution and success. Ranking the papers according with the number of times that they were cited, is one of the ways to measure the impact of several studies in a specific area of research. I ordered the papers according with the number of times that they were cited in the period between January of 2015 and December of 2017. The results were obtained in a search performed in Web of Science Core Collection, the field tag used was “wine” and the results were filtered to list all Highly Cited in Field or Hot Papers in Field.
