Abstract: Commentary article entitled "The top 100 paper" published in Nature 2014, 514(7524), 550-553 by R Van Noorden, B Maher & R Nuzzo. Although we know that the main focus of this paper is on the data extracted from Web of Science, we want to point out some discrepancies in this Google Scholar league table. Investigating on the presence of highly cited documents in Google Scholar (see http://arxiv.org/abs/1410.8464), we find certain inconsistencies (instability in the allocation of citations and identification and linkage of versions.
