Two analyses of citation vs other impact in mathematics:

- In "Don't count on it" (ams.org/journals/notices/20210), 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" (arxiv.org/abs/2005.05389, via retractionwatch.com/2020/12/19), Smolinsky et al compare highly cited papers to MathSciNet featured reviews, again finding little overlap.
