Clarivate Unveils Its Class of 2020 Citation Laureates
Clarivate introduced 24 new Citation Laureates for 2020, who were selected via analysis from its Institute for Scientific Information. These researchers—hailing from the U.S., Canada, Germany, Japan, South Korea, and the U.K.—have produced work that is considered worthy of a Nobel Prize.
According to the press release, “Each year since 2002, ISI analysts have drawn on Web of Science publication and citation data to identify influential researchers in the research areas recognized by Nobel Prizes: Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry and Economics. Out of some 50 million articles and proceedings indexed in the Web of Science since 1970, only 5,700 (or .01%) have been cited 2,000 or more times. It is from the authors of this group of papers that Citation Laureates are identified and selected. They are individuals whose research reports are highly cited and whose contributions to science have been extremely influential, even transformative.”
For more information and the full list of Citation Laureates, read the press release.
