By analyzing the number of times scientists were cited in others’ papers, the company Thomson Reuters has created a new list of the top 3,215 most highly cited—and therefore most influential— researchers in the world. Sixteen are from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

To qualify, a scientist had to publish numerous articles from 2002-2012 that ranked among the top 1% most-cited of those within a given subject area. By limiting the time range, Thomson Reuters intended to allow younger influential scientists to be highlighted along with well-established ones.

Congratulations to our top cited scientists!
