Clarivate Reveals Citation Laureates 2022 – Annual List of Researchers of Nobel Class

64 Citation Laureates appointed by the Institute for Scientific Information have later received a Nobel Prize

London, United Kingdom, September 21, 2022: Clarivate Plc (NYSE: CLVT), a leading global provider of trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation, today named 20 world-class researchers from four countries Citation Laureates™. These are researchers whose work is considered “pinnacle” according to an analysis by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI)™, part of Clarivate.

Contributions from this year’s Citation Laureates include transformative research on breast and ovarian cancer, flexible “electronic skin”, the economics of happiness and well-being, and more. Fourteen of the awardees work at leading academic institutions in the United States, three in Japan, two in the United Kingdom and one in Germany.

Each year since 2002, ISI analysts have used Web of Science™ publication and citation data to identify influential researchers in Nobel Prize-winning research areas: physiology or medicine, physics, chemistry and economics. Of approximately 55 million articles and procedures indexed in the Web of Science since 1970, only approximately 7,600 (0.01%) have been cited 2,000 times or more. Citation Laureates are identified and selected from the authors of this group of articles. They are individuals whose research publications are widely cited and whose contributions to their fields have been highly influential, even transformative.

In early October 2022, the Nobel Assembly will vote on awarding science’s highest honor. While this annual rite fuels speculation around the world, Clarivate is the only organization that uses quantitative data alongside the qualitative assessment to provide valuable insights into who might be selected. To date, 64 Citation Laureates listed in the Hall of Citation Laureates have received a Nobel Prize.

Commenting on his recognition as a Citation Laureate, E. Peter Greenberg, Professor of Microbiology at the University of Washington School of Medicine, said, “Scientific endeavors are not about people and personalities, but about discovery and advancement. We stand on the shoulders of others. I was therefore pleasantly surprised to have been selected as a Citation Laureate, as the honor differs from others in that it recognizes the impact of one’s publications. I was on the ground floor of something that was thriving and what we released caught the attention of our colleagues. This reflects an active field of dynamic researchers and teams who publish and reference our work, and it’s quite nice for me to have witnessed the development of our field.”
