In recognition of the Society’s 125th anniversary, and in acknowledgment of the critical role played by the APS journals in the Society’s legacy, Thomson Reuters, which produces the Journal Citation Reports database, including journal Impact Factors, was asked to identify the most highly cited articles since 1900. The Society therefore presents here the top ten cited articles for each of our journals for the following time periods: 1900-1924; 1925-1949; 1950-1959; 1960-1969; 1970-1979; 1980-1989; 1990-1999; and 2000-2011.
