2015 Best of Land Use Scholarship, Part IV: Most Cited Land Use Articles in the Last Thirty Years (The Long Game)

In the first look at the "best of" land use scholarship, I provided a list of all of the land use-related articles appearing in the Top 50 law reviews, as ranked by the quasi-authoritative Washington & Lee ranking methodology.  In a second post, I turned to the question of land use scholarship impact over time.  [See second post for methodology.]  In that second post, I provided a list of the 30 most-cited land use-related law review articles published within the last 3 years (since January 1, 2013).  In a third post, I provided a list of the 30 most-cited land use-related law review articles published within the last 10 years (since January 1, 2006).  Today, we look at the most-cited land use-related law articles published within the last 30 years, which I'm referring to as the "long game."
