Clarivate unveils annual Citation Laureates of ‘Nobel Class’ -

Clarivate Plc, a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, has named 16 world-class researchers from six countries as Citation LaureatesTM. These are researchers whose work is deemed to be ‘of Nobel class’, as demonstrated by analysis carried out by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)TM.

Each year since 2002, ISI analysts have drawn on Web of Science™ publication and citation data to identify influential researchers in the research areas recognized by Nobel Prizes: Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry and Economics. Out of some 52 million articles and proceedings indexed in the Web of Science since 1970, only 6,500 (or .01%) have been cited 2,000 or more times. It is from the authors of this group of papers that Citation Laureates are identified and selected. They are individuals whose research publications are highly cited and whose contributions to science have been extremely influential, even transformative.

In early October 2021, the Nobel Assembly will vote to confer science’s highest honour. While this annual rite inspires worldwide speculation, Clarivate is the only organization to use quantitative data in addition to qualitative assessment to provide valuable insights about who might be chosen. To date, 59 Citation Laureates listed in the Hall of Citation Laureates have gone on to receive a Nobel Prize.

This year nine of the 16 honorees are based at leading academic institutions in the United States, three are based in Japan, and others hail from France, Italy, Korea and Singapore.
