Seven researchers affiliated with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have been named among the scientists producing the top 1 percent of the most highly cited research in the world. They join CSHL Professor Michael Wigler, who is listed as one of the most extensively cited researchers of all time.
The annual Highly Cited Researchers list is curated by experts from the Institute for Scientific Information at the Web of Science Group. This year’s list includes 6,217 highly cited researchers in various fields from nearly 60 nations.
CSHL investigators Tom Gingeras, Z. Josh Huang, Dick McCombie, Michael Schatz, David Tuveson, and Doreen Ware, as well as affiliate Greg Hannon, made the 2019 list.
The Web of Science Group maintains a Citation Laureate list of researchers with influence rivaling that of Nobel Prize recipients and who typically rank within the top 0.01% of citations. CSHL cancer and autism researcher Michael Wigler is listed among these scientific giants in the Hall of Citations.
“Recognition and support of these exceptional researchers represents an important activity,” said David Pendlebury, Senior Citation Analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information. “These researchers create gains for society, innovation and knowledge that make the world healthier, richer, more sustainable and more secure.”
