Researchers of Nobel class: Citation Laureates 2019

World-changing research should be seen, shared and celebrated.

See the class of 2019

The Web of Science Group, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to enable researchers to accelerate discovery, recognizes 19 world-class researchers as Citation Laureates. This designation celebrates researchers whose influence is comparable to that of Nobel Prize recipients, as attested by exceptionally high citation records within the Web of Science.

Each year since 2002, the Web of Science Group analysts have drawn on publication and citation data from the Web of Science to identify influential researchers in the research areas recognized by Nobel Prizes: Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, and Economics.

Again this year, we see, share, and celebrate the world-class researchers whose publications have been cited at high frequency – typically ranking in the top 0.01% by citations – and whose contributions to science have been transformative, even revolutionary. They now join the Hall of Citation  Laureates to accompany others among the scientific and research elite.

Better data, better decisions

Citations can be a powerful indicator of research impact. As we highlight the extraordinary citation impact of the 2019 Citation Laureates, we also show that the citation record generally aligns with peer judgment. Today, researchers must demonstrate their contributions to scientific and scholarly research. Joining quantitative data to qualitative assessments from subject experts often makes for a fuller and sometimes fairer evaluation, be it for appointments, promotion, or funding decisions.

Get in touch to learn how the Web of Science Group can help individuals, groups and institutions document research activity, demonstrate impact, and contribute to research success.
