The aim of this study is to identify the 100 most cited papers and their characteristics in the field of Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) management, which were published in the Web of Knowledge database of the Institute for Science Information (ISI) from the period of 2000 until 28 February 2016. Citation analysis is the identification of literatures from peer-reviewed scholarly community, which is the most common approach in identifying major works. To date, this study is the first of its kind to cite studies related to CDW. This study was carried out by utilizing the Web of Science from the ISI for the most cited studies in each of the related journals in the area of CDW from the Journal Citation Report (JCR). The Cited Reference search tool of the ISI Web of Science database was utilized to analyse the chosen journals and the information was collected from the papers as follows: the type of study as well as the methodology, names and the number of authors and journal names and publication year. The findings from this analysis reveal that the number of citations in the 100 selected articles varies from 8 to 108; these articles have been published in 26 peer-reviewed journals under the classification of CDW. The frequency of citations does not represent the quality of the study; nevertheless, this study provides several guidelines in addressing the topics and authors who have contributed significantly to the body of knowledge in the area of CDW management.
