Centre researchers among world's most cited again
Carl Folke, Johan Rockström, Reinette “Oonsie” Biggs, Thomas Elmqvist and Per Olsson on exclusive list of world’s most influential researchers
Centre co-founders Carl Folke and Johan Rockström together with Oonsie Biggs, Per Olsson and Thomas Elmqvist are listed on the exclusive 2021 Clarivate Analytics overview of the world's most cited researchers.
The Highly Cited Researchers list from Clarivate identifies scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant influence through publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade.
Centre researchers have consistently been represented on the list over the past years. Carl Folke has been among the world’s most highly cited since the start of the list in 2014 and remains one of the world's most cited researchers across any discipline.
The analysis behind the ranking is based on publications and citations in scientific journals over a period of eleven years (January 2010 to December 2020). As a basis, Clarivate has used the Web of Science database and started from 21 different scientific fields and had a category for interdisciplinary.
Stefano Manzoni from the Department of Physical Geography was the sixth researcher from Stockholm University to be included on the list.
