18 BRC Researchers Amongst Most Highly Cited in World


We are proud to announce that 18 of our academics have been named on the annual Highly Cited Researcher 2020 list from Clarivate released today.

The highly anticipated annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.

This year’s list continues to recognise researchers whose citation records position them in the very highest strata of influence and impact, including 23 Nobel laureates.

King’s College London has 34 entries in this year’s list, 31 working at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) and 18 of these part of the Maudsley BRC. These are:

David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information, said:

“In the race for knowledge, it is human capital that is fundamental and this list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers who are having a great impact on the research community as measured by the rate at which their work is being cited by others”

The methodology that determines the “who’s who” of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information™ at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries and research institutions where these scientific elite are based.
