Clarivate Plc (NYSE:CLVT), a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, today named 16 world-class researchers from six countries as Citation Laureates™. These are researchers whose work is deemed to be ‘of Nobel class’, as demonstrated by analysis carried out by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)™.
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 52 million articles and proceedings indexed in the Web of Science since 1970, only 6,500 (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 publications are highly cited and whose contributions to science have been extremely influential, even transformative.
This year’s list includes 16 new Citation Laureates from institutions in six countries: France, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore, United States
59 Citation Laureates named by the Institute for Scientific Information have gone on to receive a Nobel Prize.
Jean-Pierre Changeux, Institut Pasteur Professor Emeritus, was selected this year by Clarivate as one of its 16 Citation Laureates, “for contributions to our understanding of neuroreceptors and especially the identification of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor and its allosteric properties.” He joins a community of scientists recognized for their excellence.
