Highly cited researchers

Prof David Livermore (MED) and Prof Phil Jones (ENV) have been named as two of the world’s most influential scientific minds in the Thompson Reuters 2015 Highly Cited Researchers list.

The 2015 Highly Cited Researchers list represents some of world’s most influential scientific minds. About 3,000 researchers earned this distinction by writing the greatest number of reports officially designated by Essential Science Indicators as Highly Cited Papers — ranking among the top one percent most cited for their subject field and year of publication, earning them the mark of exceptional impact.

They were selected as Highly Cited Researchers due to the number of citations their work has received from their fellow researchers. Prof Jones’ work has been identified as being among the most valuable and significant in the field of Geosciences, and Prof Livermore’s in the field of Pharmacy and Toxicology.
