Progress

This table is for Estonians only: the number shows how many times their total (ns)citation count has grown up from 31.12.2001. Included are only people with ≥15 (ns)citations at the current moment. The intermediate values in -> correspond to the end of year 2002, and to the end of the year 2003. (The latter is equal to the state of the citeseer databas in 01.09.03 - 30.06.04.)
