Law Review Article Citations

The top 0.5% of articles get 18% of all citations; the top 5.2% of articles get 50% of all citations; and the top 17% of articles get 79% of all citations. . . . 40% of articles are never cited at all.

From here.

Most law review articles (those ranked 1001 to 3501 and beyond for downloads from SSRN anyway) have fewer than 140 internet based readers. And you thought blogs were irrelevant.
