a paper with high impact does not need to be extensively cited, however it needs to inspire a change in its domain or even define a new domain. This can be manifested by the changes in the vocabulary which are the result of a specific publication. Consequently, a very active scholarly debate about a survey paper in a specific subject generating many citations will have a lower impact than a paper developing a new strand of research.
