DCRI faculty among world’s most-cited researchers

November 29, 2017 – Eight DCRI faculty members were included in Clarivate Analytics’ list of the most-cited researchers in 21 fields of science and social science.

A new list of the world’s most-cited researchers includes 33 Duke faculty members, 8 of whom are DCRI faculty.

The list, compiled by Clarivate Analytics, comprises 3,400 researchers in 21 fields of science and social science from around the world. The data used in the analysis and selection of the new Highly Cited Researchers came from Essential Science Indicators (ESI), 2005-2015, which included 134,832 Highly Cited Papers. Each of these papers ranked in the top 1 percent by total citations according to their ESI field assignment and year of publication.

The DCRI members included in the list are Robert Califf, Christopher Granger, Richard S.E. Keefe, Kristin Newby, E. Magnus Ohman, Manesh Patel, Michael Pencina, and DCRI Executive Director Eric Peterson. Many of these researchers were also included in Clarivate’s lists from previous years.

“This list illustrates how our faculty are fulfilling our mission to share knowledge that improves patient care,” Peterson said. “None of this work, however, would be possible without the vital collaboration of our operations team and partners around the world. That spirit of cooperation is what makes the DCRI unique among our peers in both academia and industry.”
