David N. Louis, MD, and Robert H. Young, MD, have received the 2020 Patricia R. Austen, RN, MGH History Award. The award honors individuals or groups who have worked to promote or preserve Mass General history.
Web of Science Group’s annual list of Highly Cited Researchers was recently released, and we are pleased to announce that 55 investigators from the Mass General Research Institute made the list.
In 2019, fewer than 6,300, or 0.1%, of the world’s researchers were named across 21 research fields.
According to Web of Science Group, the Highly Cited Researchers list identifies scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant influence through publication of multiple papers, highly cited by their peers, during the last decade.
For the 2019 report, the papers surveyed were those published and cited during 2008-2018, which then were ranked in the top 1% by citations for their essential science indicators (ESI) and year.
Please join us in saying congratulations to this year’s class of highly cited researchers!
