van der Zande, Huang, and Murphy named to Highly Cited Researchers list
Three MRL faculty have been named to the 2018 list of Highly Cited Researchers by Clarivate Analytics: Assistant Professor Arend van der Zande, Assistant Professor Pinshane Huang, and Professor of Chemistry and Associate Director of MRL Catherine Jones Murphy.
Highly Cited Researchers is an annual list recognizing influential researchers in the sciences and social sciences from around the world. The 2018 list contains 6,078 researchers, with about 43 percent of them from the U.S. The list is based on exceptional contemporary achievement: only highly cited papers in science and social sciences journals indexed in the Web of Science Core Collection during the 11-year period, 2006-2016, were surveyed.
Highly cited papers are defined as those that rank in the top 1 percent by citations for field and publication year. This percentile-based selection method removes the citation advantage of older papers relative to recently published ones, since papers are weighed against others in the same annual cohort. Of the world population of scientists and social scientists, the Clarivate Analytics Highly Cited Researchers are one in 1,000.
