Six Essential Science Indicators highly-cited papers
Shameless selfpromotion ..., I know! But hey, academics don't get good news that often. Most of our feedback consists of critique and rejections, so we need something to boost our egos occasionally. I have been listed on ISI's Essential Science Indicators ranking of the 1% most highly cited authors in Economics & Business since 2007; in the last years, my position has crept up to being in the top 0.2%.
In addition to ranking the top 1% most highly cited authors and universities, ISI also determines highly-cited papers, which are papers that are in the top 1% of their field in terms of citations when compared to other papers published that year. Six of my papers were honoured in this way.
Update: 12 January 2017: Highly cited paper number 7 this week!

Highly-cited in Business & Management
Since May 2017, I have four highly cited papers in Business and Management. The first is discussed in the provocative blogpost: Should we distance ourselves from the cultural distance concept? The second is discussed in a blogpost with my other work on the bridging role of international assignees in knowledge transfer in MNCs. The third paper is discussed in Helene Tenzer's blogpost on multi-lingual teams on my website.The fourth one doesn't have its own blogpost yet, but is referenced in a blogpost on Nancy Adler's inspiring work.

Highly-cited in Library and Information Science
My four other highly-cited papers are all in the field of bibliometrics and thus do not "count" for my author ranking in Economics & Business. However, they deserve just as much of a mention. The first one presents an alternative to the much-maligned ISI journal impact factor, by using Google Scholar as a data source and a five year h-index for journals.
The second and third build on my early work with Google Scholar and are referenced in a blogpost, which also discusses the fourth highly-cited article comparing coverage in Google Scholar, Scopus and the Web of Science. This last paper is even a "hot paper", meaning that it was recognized very soon after publication, reflected by rapid and significant numbers of citations.
