20 November 2019 Highly Cited Researchers

Maciej Lewenstein, Frank Koppens, and Javier Garcia de Abajo

Three ICFO Group Leaders included in Clarivate Analytics 2019 compilation of Highly Cited Researchers Clarivate Analytics has announced that three ICFO Group Leaders have been named Highly Cited Researchers, according to the Highly Cited Researchers 2019 list from the Web of Science Group.

ICREA Professors at ICFO:
  • Javier Garcia de Abajo- Cross Field Category
  • Frank Koppens- Cross Field Category
  • Maciej Lewenstien- Physics Category
The highly anticipated list identifies scientists who produced multiple papers ranking in the top 1% by citations for their field and year of publication, demonstrating significant research influence among their peers.

The methodology that determines the who’s who of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute for Scientific Information at the Web of Science Group.

The data are taken from 21 broad research fields within Essential Science Indicators, a component of InCites. The fields are defined by sets of journals and exceptionally, in the case of multidisciplinary journals such as Nature and Science, by a paper-by-paper assignment to a field based on an analysis of the cited references in the papers. This percentile-based selection method removes the citation advantage of older papers relative to recently published ones, since papers are weighed against others in the same annual cohort.

Congratulations Javier, Frank and Maciej!
