Mayo’s 22 in “Highly Cited Researchers”

By Robert Nellis

One of the factors in determining the impact a researcher has in the world of science is the number of times that papers by that individual are cited in other peer-reviewed articles. The assumption is that if a discovery is significant, more researchers will use it as a basis for advancing their own research and therefore will be compelled to reference it. Highly Cited Researchers is a compilation of such top researchers -- published  by Thomson Reuters -- across the breadth of research, including physical and life sciences, mathematics and engineering. The count is divided up into groups by subfield so the publication lists 3,000 names across all of science, globally. It spans the decade from 2002-2012 and counts the number of citations in that period, giving more weight to those appearing in more important journals. Short of getting too granular here, the complete methodology is available on the Highly Cited Researchers website, along with common questions about the process. We have simply listed the names and department affiliations of the 22 researchers at Mayo Clinic.
