Transcript Monica Vetter, PhD: Citation is a very technical term, but it simply means that other scientists have read your work and they've thought about your work, and then they use that to inform what they're going to do. And if they cite it, if they reference your work in their published papers, it means that they feel that the paper that they're citing was an important concept that guided their subsequent experiments. And so as Dr. Horner said, it's a barometer of what kind of influence the work is having in the field. Does it actually lead people to have new insights that then launches them in new directions and helps drive the field forward? Nicholas Marsh-Armstrong, PhD: Having our work cited so often is evidence to us that we're having a big impact, and I think that we know that already. So I think having our work cited so often by other scientists, many of whom we respect to a high degree, is just evidence to us that we're having a big impact in driving the future of glaucoma research. I think that the Glaucoma Research Foundation's vision in making this collaborative effort that we call "The Catalyst For a Cure" will have a long lasting impact on how glaucoma is studied in the future and how it will be treated in the future. So I think it was money well invested.+ More details
