Ann T Gregory
Med J Aust 2004; 181 (1): 9-12.

According to data from the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI), the most-cited MJA article is Cade’s ground-breaking report on the effect of lithium in mania (1949; 888 citations), followed by Marshall et al’s reports on the role of Helicobacter pylori in gastroduodenal disease (1985; 766 and 523 citations, respectively). Others in the “top 10” span decades and disciplines; all have a common grounding in Australian data of global relevance.
