Aron Stubbins, an associate professor at the UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, is one of just a handful of researchers cited in the journal Limnology and Oceanography for authoring two of the journal’s top scientific papers over the past 60 years.
Limnology and Oceanography is an official publication of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography and is considered a premier scientific journal. In its 60th anniversary issue, the journal collected and republished the 10 most cited research papers for each of the last six decades. Stubbins authored or co-authored two of those papers, one in 2008 and the other in 2010.
The journal used the number of times a paper was cited in future studies as the yardstick to determine which papers should be included on the list.
