The list of Highly Cited Researchers for 2019 includes two DMPI scientists: DMPI Metabolomics Core Laboratory Director Olga Ilkayeva and DMPI Director Chris Newgard. They are two of Duke’s 54 prominent and influential researchers included in the list (see full list here).
Citation rate – the number of times a given author’s work appears in the citations of other papers – is a proxy for the influence and importance of a scientist’s work. This annual metric has been compiled for decades by a company now called ISI-Web of Science, a Clarivate Analytics company. The organization recognizes the world’s most influential researchers, demonstrated by the production of multiple highly-cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in Web of Science.
Both Olga and Chris are recognized in the cross-field category which identifies researchers with substantial multidisciplinary influence.
Congratulations on this well-deserved achievement!
