Two analyses of citation vs other impact in mathematics:
- In "Don't count on it" (https://www.ams.org/journals/notices/202101/rnoti-p114.pdf), Edward Dunne compares highly cited mathematicians to winners of multiple prizes; high citations clustered in few topics, while prize winners were widely distributed across research areas.
- In "Citations versus expert opinions" (https://arxiv.org/abs/2005.05389, via https://retractionwatch.com/2020/12/19/weekend-reads-prof-sues-journal-school-after-demotion-following-retraction-researcher-fired-after-questioning-why-school-rejected-grant-the-authors-who-like-publish-or-perish/), Smolinsky et al compare highly cited papers to MathSciNet featured reviews, again finding little overlap.
