Thomson Reuters has recently released “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds: 2014,” an extensive report that analyses research paper citations and lists the top researchers in science around the globe.
Scientists and researchers named in the publication have published the highest number of articles among those most frequently cited by fellow researchers.
Professor Bruno Scrosati, from the Sapienza Chemistry Department and a member of the Italian Institute of Technology, is mentioned as one of the researchers “publishing the greatest number of highly cited papers in one of 21 broad fields.”
The ranking was determined by analyzing citation data over the last 11 years to identify scientists and researchers who have published the most influential work over the last twelve years. These individuals are most concretely influencing the future direction of research and global scientific activity.
The report is divided into two main sections. The first lists the scientists who have published the greatest number of hot papers during 2012-2013. Hot papers are ranked in the top 0.1% by citations per sector. Moreover, these researchers have produced work, within the last two years, that’s made a notable impact on their peers. They have published research and experiments that fellow scientists have found groundbreaking and influential.
The second section of researchers lists 3,200 individuals who have published the greatest number of highly cited papers in one of 21 sectors. Highly cited papers rank in the top 1% by citations for their sector and year of publication.
