The 2017 Most Highly Cited list compiled by Clarivate Analytics celebrates contemporary research achievement in 21 fields of the sciences and social sciences based on the number of citations for papers published between 2005 and 2015. Citations refers to the number of times a publication was cited by others as a source of information in an article or other publication. It is a measure of impact a particular paper has on the field. Those authors that made the 2017 list have produced a large number of peer-reviewed research articles that rank in the top one percent for citations in their field during the 11-year period.
What does it mean to be on the list of Most Cited Researcher?
To put that into perspective, Clarivate Analytics analyzed over 10 million articles from 11 thousand journals to identify 3,000 most cited authors. Using mathematical methods, Essential Science Indicators (ESI) are then applied to produce rankings of authors, institutions, countries and journals in the various disciplines.
To be included in the Clarivate Most Cited List is a measure of the value of the work done by an individual and how much he or she has impacted the field, and inspired (or challenged) other research.
BCRF was founded on the principle that identifying the best in the field and providing them with the flexibility and security to pursue what they are most passionate about will have a significant impact on the field of breast cancer.
The following list of BCRF investigators who have been named to the 2017 Most Cited Researchers list speaks to the success of our founding philosophy. These individuals join 36 other BCRF investigators previously named as Most Cited Researchers.
* In addition to Highly Cited Researchers, Clarivate Analytics, which was previously part of Thomson Reuters, also produces a list of the Hottest Researchers. In contrast to the 10-year window of the Highly Cited Researchers, Hottest Researchers are those with at least fourteen publications in the last two years that were rapidly cited after publication. Congratulations to Jedd Wolchok for also making this list with 14 hot papers.
