Thomson Reuters has released its annual list of leading researchers in the sciences and social sciences from around the world. The 2016 Highly Cited Researchers list includes 13 Johns Hopkins University scientists whose publications are among the top one percent in their fields for citations.
To determine the most highly cited researchers, Thomson Reutersexamined the number of citations for contemporary research papers published between 2004 and 2014. The methodology, which categorized papers into 22 subject areas and relied on analysis from Essential Science Indicators, sought to limit the disadvantage of recently-published papers relative to older ones. Highly Cited Papers were those in the highest percentile for their ESI category and year of publication. Approximately 3,000 researchers were named to the list.
