B-SMART celebrates 2 researchers in Highly Cited Researchers 2020 List

The B-SMART Coordinator Prof. Raymond Schiffelers and Work Package Leader Dr. Pieter Vader both from UMC Utrecht have been named to the 2020 Highly Cited Researchers list from Clarivate Analytics. In 2020, fewer than 6,200, or about 0.1%, of the world's researchers, in 21 research fields and across multiple fields, have earned this exclusive distinction.

The annual list recognizes world-class researchers who have demonstrated significant influence in their fields. 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 fields over the past decade (2009-2019) in Clarivate’s Web of Science citation index.

“In the race for knowledge, it is human capital that is fundamental and this list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers who are having a great impact on the research community as measured by the rate at which their work is being cited by others,” said David Pendlebury, senior citation analyst at Clarivate’s Institute for Scientific Information.
