Twenty-two New York University faculty have been named to the 2019 Highly Cited Researchers list from the Web of Science Group.

The annual list recognizes world-class researchers selected for their significant influence in their fields, which at NYU, range from genomics to economics and cardiology to neuroscience. The scientists and social scientists chosen from around the world have published multiple papers that rank in the top 1 percent by citations in their field over the past decade (2008-2018), according to Web of Science.

The methodology that determines the “who’s who” of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute for Scientific Information at the Web of Science Group, part of Clarivate Analytics.

David Pendlebury, senior citation analyst at the Institute for Scientific Information said: “Recognition and support of these exceptional researchers represents an important activity for a nation or an institution’s plans for efficient and accelerated advancement. The Highly Cited Researchers list contributes to the identification of that small fraction of the researcher population that contributes disproportionately to extending the frontiers of knowledge. These researchers create gains for society, innovation and knowledge that make the world healthier, richer, more sustainable and more secure.”
