ACS Editors Are Among the World’s Most Cited Researchers

Clarivate Analytics’ 2018 Highly Cited Researchers list includes 94 Editors of ACS journals. The list recognizes the top 1% of researchers by citations in one or more of the 21 fields used in Clarivate Analytics Essential Science Indicators, which include Chemistry and Biology & Biochemistry, but also encompass all other major fields of research.

The list looks at papers published and cited between 2006 and 2016, selecting the top 1% by citations in a field and year. Just 6,000 researchers around the world are included on the list, with 4,000 being named for their work in specific areas and about 2,000 more being included for work across multiple disciplines. This year marks the first time the list has identified researchers with cross-disciplinary impact.

Find out which ACS Editors made the list this year, listed alphabetically first by journal and then by last name.
