Ten BRC researchers and academics among most cited in the world


Clarivate Analytics today published its annual Highly Cited Researchers list. Now in its fifth year, the citation analysis identifies the most influential researchers as determined by their peers around the globe - those who have consistently won recognition in the form of high citation counts over a decade. This year’s list continues to recognise researchers whose citation records position them in the very highest strata of influence and impact as it includes 17 Nobel laureates. 

King’s College London has 24 entries in this year’s list, with 18 of those working at the IoPPN and 10 affiliated with the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre. These are:

Professor Ian Everall, King's College London, said, ‘I am truly delighted that we have 18 of our world acclaimed researchers listed on the highly-cited researchers list. This is yet another marker of the world leading quality of the work carried out by our esteemed academics and again is validation that we are one of the most prestigious institutions for research in neuroscience and mental health.’

Annette Thomas, CEO of the Scientific & Academic Research group at Clarivate Analytics, said: ‘The Highly Cited Researchers 2018 list helps to identify the researchers who are having the greatest impact on the research community as measured by the rate at which their work is being cited by others and that contributes so greatly to extending the frontier and gaining knowledge and innovations for society - contributions that make the world healthier, safer, richer, and more sustainable.’ 

The methodology that determines the who’s who of high-impact researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute of Scientific Information at Clarivate Analytics. It uses Essential Science Indicators, a unique compilation of science performance metrics and trend data based on scholarly paper publication counts and citation data from the Web of Science, the premier web-based environment of scientific and scholarly research literature totalling over 33,000 journals.
