Since 1984, when it was first published, the Journal of Controlled Release has been the premier journal in the field and the official organ of the Controlled Release Society. It was recently announced that among 4,367 papers, the two most cited papers in this journal are the contributions of Prof. Nicholas Peppas and his former student Philip Ritger that introduced the exponential equation for the analysis of relaxation and diffusion-controlled release behavior from swellable and non-swellable drug delivery systems. The paper "A simple equation for description of solute release. II: Fickian and anomalous release from swellable devices", published in 1987, in volume 5, pp. 37-42, has 565 citations and is ranked first among all papers of the journal, while the first part of the same work "A simple equation for description of solute release. I: Fickian and non-Fickian release from non-swellable devices in the form of slabs, spheres, cylinders or discs", published also in 1987, in volume 5, pp. 23-36, has 468 citations and is ranked second.
