AbstractWe apply the Google PageRank algorithm to assess the relative importance of all publications in the Physical Review family of journals from 1893--2003. While the Google number and the number of citations for each publication are positively correlated, outliers from this linear relation identify some exceptional papers or "gems" that are universally familiar to physicists.

Review title: A different point of view on bibliometrics
Reviewer: reviewer8

Comment: This article proposes to use the Google PageRank to find important and precursor scientific articles. This approach allows to compare directly articles from different fields. Unlike traditional bibliometric methods, the PageRank approach does not need a rescaling by scientific fields.
