IAS Fellows among the world's most cited scientists

News |


The frequency of citations of a study is a good indicator of research quality. To determine the "Highly Cited Researchers," the U.S. company Clarivate each year evaluates the "Web of Science" database it operates, which records scientific publications from a broad range of subjects.

The new edition of the evaluation shows the scientists who were cited most frequently in their respective fields between 2010 and 2020. Researchers who are cited particularly often in different fields are listed in the "Cross-Field" category. In total, the list comprises around 6,600 people in no particular order, including the following TUM-IAS fellows:

Ib Chorkendorff (Chemistry), DTU Copenhagen

Naomi Halas (Material Science), Rice University

Laura Herz (Cross-Field), University of Oxford

Bernhard Küster (Cross-Field), TUM

Peter Nordlander (Material Science), Rice University

Ingrid Kögel-Knabner (Agricultural Science), TUM

Shuit-Tong Lee (Cross-Field) Suzhou University

Johannes Lehmann (Environment and Ecology und Agricultural Sciences), Cornell University

Takao Someya (Cross-Field), University of Tokyo and RIKEN
