Bas Dutilh, Leo Joosten, Jos van der Meer, Mihai Netea and Henk Stunnenberg made it to this year’s list of highly cited researchers. Researchers in this list are selected for their exceptional research performance and are regarded to have had a major impact on fellow scientists.The list was recently published by Clarivate Analytics, an American company that offers services in the area of scientific research (such as Web of Science). According to the creator of the list, the awarded researchers ‘have demonstrated significant influence through publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade’. They produced several publications in the years 2006-2016 that rank the top 1 % by citations.
Four of the five RIMLS researchers in the list of Highly Cited Researchers 2018 are classified in the new 'Cross-Field' category, meaning they have been cited in different fields. Clarivate Analytics wants to use this category to break down the “artificial walls of conventional disciplinary categories”.
The five RIMLS reseachers are:
- Bas Dutilh (Cross Field)
- Leo Joosten (Cross Field)
- Jos van der Meer (Cross Field)
- Mihai Netea (Microbiology)
- Henk Stunnenberg (Cross Field)
