I would like to know how to prioritize search results by number of citations.

The capability to search a topic and see the articles that cite each of the search results is a feature of  the Google Scholar,  Scopus and Web of Science databases. These databases are linked in in the Quick Links box on the left just below the search box on the HSL homepage.

Search results in Google Scholar are displayed with the most highly cited articles towards the top. In both Scopus and Web of Science you can use the Sort feature above search results to organize the results by the number of times cited.

The Analyze Results and Citation Report are also interesting features of Web of Science. Scopus provides a Citation Overview for search results.
