Seventeen School of Medicine Faculty Named 'Highly Cited' by Thomson Reuters

Release Date: June 24, 2014

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. Seventeen are from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

To qualify, a scientist had to publish numerous articles from 2002 to 2012 that ranked among the top one percent 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!
