This study is conducted to analyse the citations of the top 100 most-cited papers of the journal Scientometrics in Web of Science (WoS) and its association and correlation with corresponding citations in Scopus and Google Scholar (GS). Chi-square and Spearman’s rank rho are used to ascertain the association and correlation among these citations in different platforms. GS citations for the papers are comparatively higher than the citations in the other two databases. Scopus citations are slightly higher than WoS citations. The study found that there is significant association among level of citations of top 100 cited papers of the journal Scientometrics in WoS and its corresponding level of citations in Scopus and Google Scholar and also high positive correlation among citations in the three databases.
