Clarivate Analytics, formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters, has published its list of Highly Cited Researchers 2016. The list names nearly 3,000 scientists from around the world whose studies in 21 areas of research were among the top 1 percent most referenced in academic journals from January 2004 to December 2014 in a total of over 130,000 publications.
The list is a citation analysis identifying scientists – as determined by their fellow researchers – whose research has had significant global impact within their respective fields of study. Russia is represented by three names: biochemist Vladimir Uversky (Russian Academy of Sciences), physicist Sergei Morozov (Russian Academy of Sciences) and physicist Sergei Odintsov (TUSUR University). Dr. Sergei Odintsov is a senior researcher at the TUSUR Laboratory of Theoretical Cosmology.
As expected, dominating in the list were the largest and the most active areas of research – life sciences, such as clinical medicine, biology and biochemistry, and molecular biology and genetics.
