UNIVERSITÄT HEIDELBERG WITH 16 “HIGHLY CITED RESEARCHERS”

INTERNATIONAL EVALUATION NAMES RESEARCHERS WHOSE PUBLICATIONS HAVE BEEN MOST CITED WORLDWIDE


16 researchers from Heidelberg University feature on the 2022 list of “Highly Cited Researchers”. This international evaluation names researchers whose publications have been cited most frequently worldwide in their respective field or who have an outstanding track-record of publications across several disciplines.

The list includes a total of 21 disciplines from the natural, life and social sciences as well as the cross-field category, which recognises researchers with an outstanding track-record of publications across several disciplines. Ten of the 16 most-cited scientists from Ruperto Carola are in this 22nd category. Among them is Prof. Dr Ralf Bartenschlager, who is on the list of “Highly Cited Researchers” for the tenth time in a row. Prof. Dr Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg, also listed in the cross-field category, is among the most-cited researchers worldwide for the ninth successive time.

The citation count reflects how often colleagues cite a publication in their research papers, and is therefore an important indicator of a publication’s scientific influence. The latest list of highly cited researchers, issued by analytics company Clarivate, assessed publications between 2011 and 2021. Highly cited publications are those in the top 1% by citations in their respective field and year of publication. The list was first issued in 2001; it was revised for the first time in 2014 and since then has appeared annually. It currently names approximately 7,000 researchers from 69 countries.
