Identification of highly cited articles based on the h-index and its properties is important for the evaluation of the past, present, and future of any research discipline. In this study, we aimed to identify the h-classic articles in orthodontics.
One search on the Web of Science identified all articles from 2000 to 2015 in the 89 journals indexed by the 2015 InCites Journal Citation Reports in the scientific area “dentistry, oral surgery, and medicine.” A second search was performed in the Web of Science using all mesh terms related to orthodontics. Then, we applied the h-classic method to select the recent articles with the greatest scientific impact in orthodontics.
Eighty articles were considered as h-classic articles. They were published in 20 of the 89 dental journals of the 2015 InCites Journal Citation Reports list. Only 36 articles appeared in orthodontic journals: 23 in the American Journal of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics (28.8%), 7 in The Angle Orthodontist (8.8%), and 6 in European Journal of Orthodontics (7.5%). Thirty-eight articles originated from Europe, 28 from the Americas, and 14 from the Middle East and Asia.
More than half of fundamental orthodontic research is published in nonorthodontic journals showing that our field is currently limited, and interactions with other research fields should be sought to increase orthodontic research importance and appeal.
The h-index measures an article’s or author’s productivity and citation impact.
The 80 most cited orthodontic articles were identified as h-classics.
More than 25% of the orthodontic h-classics originated from U.S. universities.
Scandinavian countries accounted for a third of the articles from Europe.
Fewer than half of the orthodontic h-classics were published in orthodontic journals.
Orthodontic research has evolved and continues to evolve throughout time. Many studies have attempted to address the qualitative aspects of this progress, focusing on qualitative and quantitative analyses of the published output. The articles with the greatest impact in a given scientific area are termed “citation classics.” Such studies identify the highly cited articles setting thresholds of citations received, such as the 100 most cited cleft lip and palate-related articles, the 100 most cited articles in periodontology, or the 50 most cited articles in dentistry and medicine in general. In orthodontics, Hui et al published a study with the 100 most cited articles in orthodontics.
Arbitrary thresholds, however, take no account of the variability among research areas in the number of highly influential articles or the fact that the achievement of many hundreds of citations may be commonplace in some areas and difficult to attain in others. To overcome this, Martinez et al suggested the selection of classic articles based on the h-index proposed by Hirsch and the h-core concept. De la Flor-Martinez et al further applied this method to identify classic articles in implant dentistry, periodontics, and oral surgery. There is no relevant information for h-classics in orthodontics. Despite the scarce attempts in evaluating articles with a significant impact in the orthodontic community, there is no previous evaluation of the “citation classics” for orthodontics using objective methodology. The aim of this article was to identify the classic articles in orthodontics using the h-classic method.
Material and methods
We applied the method of Martinez et al to identify recent articles with a great impact on the scientific community in orthodontics. One search was performed using the Web of Science and included all publications in all databases (Web of Science Core Collection, KCI-Korean Journal Database, MEDLINE, BioSIS Citation Index, and SciELO Citation Index) from 2000 to 2015 in the 89 journals indexed by the 2015 InCites Journal Citation Reports in the scientific area “dentistry, oral surgery, and medicine.” This was performed using the advanced search of Web of Science and applying the command WC = dentistry, oral surgery, and medicine which corresponds to this category (WC = Web of Science Category). A second search was performed in the same databases of the Web of Science platform as above for the same period using all mesh terms related to orthodontics provided by the United States National Library of Medicine ( meshb-nlm-nih-gov.easyaccess1.lib.cuhk.edu.hk/#/record/ui?ui=D009970 ).
Specifically, the search was as follows, using the command topic search (TS):
TS = ([mandibular advancement] OR [orthodontic anchorage procedures] OR [orthodontic appliance design] OR [orthodontic appliances] OR [occlusal splints] OR [orthodontic appliances, functional] OR [activator appliances] OR [orthodontic appliances, removable] OR [activator appliances] OR [extraoral traction appliances] OR [orthodontic brackets] OR [orthodontic retainers] OR [orthodontic wires] OR [orthodontics, corrective] OR [crown lengthening] OR [occlusal adjustment] OR [orthodontic extrusion] OR [orthodontic space closure] OR [palatal expansion technique] OR [tooth movement] OR [orthodontics, interceptive] OR [serial extraction] OR [orthodontics, preventive] OR [space maintenance]).
Then, using the AND command, the results of the 2 lists were combined to find the articles in common. The articles appearing in the final list were sorted according to their citations to compute the h-index. Applying the h-index calculation on this list gave the h-core articles of this scientific area. The h-index calculated for orthodontics was 80, as defined by Hirsch. The cutoff for the number of citations required to be considered as h-classics was 81. The h-core articles were identified, and the resources concerning those articles retrieved by the Web of Science platform (authors, publication year, journal, document type, number of citations, institution) were classified and analyzed. The reprint address was retrieved to identify the origin of the article, and we further analyzed the authors’ affiliations.
For the h-classic articles, the first search in the 89 journals of the 2015 InCites Journal Citation Reports list resulted in a total of 130,812 hits, and the second search in the Web of Science database using mesh terms related to orthodontics retrieved 17,128. Combining the 2 searches produced a final result of 8167, which were the common articles of the 2 searches. The h-index of these articles was 80; consequently, the 80 most cited articles were identified as the h-classics ( Table I ).

The total number of citations of all 80 classic articles was 9294, and the mean was 116.2. The most cited article received 274 citations, and the last on the list received 81.
Most of the 80 h-classics were published in 2001 (17, 21.3%), 2003 (13, 16.3%), and 2005 (12, 15.0%), whereas none was published in the last 3 years (2013-2015) ( Fig ).
Sixty articles were original research articles (75.0%), and 20 were reviews (25.0%). Two of the latter were systematic reviews ; no meta-analyses appeared.
The h-classics were published in 20 of the 89 dental journals of the 2015 InCites Journal Citation Reports list. Thirty-six articles (45.1%) appeared in orthodontic journals: 23 were published in the American Journal of Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics (28.8%), 7 in The Angle Orthodontist (8.8%), and 6 in the European Journal of Orthodontics (7.5%) ( Table II ). The remaining 44 appeared in general dental journals.
