According to Web of Science, two of my papers are considered highly cited papers!! Per their definition, each paper "received enough citations to place it in the top 1% of the academic field of Environment/Ecology based on a highly cited threshold for the field and publication year."
The two papers?
Neubauer, S.C. and J.P. Megonigal. 2015. Moving beyond global warming potentials to quantify the climatic role of ecosystems. Ecosystems. 18:1000-1013. doi: 10.1007/s10021-015-9879-4.
Herbert, E.R., P. Boon, A.J. Burgin, S.C. Neubauer, R.B. Franklin, M. Ardón, K.N. Hopfensperger, L.P.M. Lamers, and P. Gell. 2015. A global perspective on wetland salinization: Ecological consequences of a growing threat to freshwater wetlands. Ecosphere. 6: Article 206. doi: 10.1890/ES14-00534.1.
As of today, each has been cited 104 times (Web of Science). The numbers are a bit higher (130+ citations each) if we use Google Scholar's count. Either way, it's great that people are reading and citing these papers. I hope you've found them to be useful, too!
