MPI-BGC continues to host several of the world's most cited scientists
In the Who's Who of the world's highly-cited researchers, five scientists from our institute are again represented in 2022: Directors Markus Reichstein and Sönke Zaehle, as well as group leaders Henrik Hartmann, Martin Jung and Jens Kattge. As a result, the MPI-BGC is among the most cited Max Planck Institutes, as it has been for several years.
The annual ranking of highly cited scientists draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts from the Institute of Scientific Information at Clarivate Analytics. The publication and citation data come from the Web of Science, a web-based database containing the scientific literature of over 30,000 journal titles.
