Highly cited scientists at MPI for Biogeochemistry
August 8, 2014
In the ISI ranking 2014 recently published by Thomson Reuters, scientists are listed who are most frequently cited by their fellow researchers. In the field “Environment/Ecology”, Markus Reichstein and Ernst-Detlef Schulze made it in this list of 137 highly cited scientists worldwide.
Researchers included in this ranking must have published a certain number of ‘Highly Cited Papers’, defined as those papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year. However, since the analysis is done within 21 broad fields, cross-disciplinary research like biogeochemistry is underestimated.
