Highly Cited Researchers are those who have demonstrated significant and broad influence reflected in the publication of multiple papers, highly cited by their peers over the course of the last decade. The highly cited papers rank in the top 1% by citations in a given field or fields and year in Web of Science and of the world’s population of scientists and social scientists, these Highly Cited Researchers are one in 1,000.

Professor Nicola Marzari, holder of the Chair of Theory and Simulation of Materials in the Institute of Materials of EPFL, was also included on last year’s list.

“The Highly Cited Researchers list contributes to the identification of that small fraction of the researcher population that significantly extends the frontiers of knowledge,” David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information said in a release. “These researchers create gains for society, innovation and knowledge that make the world healthier, richer, more sustainable and more secure.”

The 2019 list includes 23 Nobel laureates, including three announced this year: Gregg Semenza of Johns Hopkins University, John Goodenough of the University of Texas at Austin and Esther Duflo of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
