Abstract

Aim: Despite a vast array of research in heart failure (HF), no bibliometric analysis has been conducted for HF. Therefore, we sought to identify in-depth characteristics of 100 most cited publications in HF. Materials & methods: Two independent reviewers searched the Scopus Library Database using a variety of keywords to extract the top 100 articles. Results: Majority (36%) of top 100 cited articles were published between 2001 and 2005. The total number of citations ranged from 6294 to 1003. Females had less than a quarter representation in both first and senior author position. More than three-fourths (86%) of the articles were funded. Conclusion: Our analysis highlights focal areas of research activity in order to guide HF specialists toward impactful research areas.
