ORNL: Ten ORNL scientists among world’s most highly cited researchers

Ten scientists from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory are among the world’s most highly cited researchers, according to a bibliometric analysis conducted by the scientific publication analytics firm Clarivate.

The annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their field through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. These researchers authored publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science citation index.

“Researchers at ORNL are leading the advancement of scientific knowledge in multiple fields,” said ORNL Director Thomas Zacharia. “This recognition demonstrates that the laboratory and our scientists are engaged in cutting-edge research and development to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.”

The ORNL scientists listed are:

Miaofang Chi, Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences
Sheng Dai, Chemical Sciences Division
Easo George, UT-ORNL Governor’s Chair for Advanced Alloy Theory and Development, Materials Science and Technology Division
Colleen Iversen, Environmental Sciences Division
Michael McGuire, Materials Science and Technology Division
Karren More, Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences
Richard Norby, retired, Environmental Sciences Division
Art Ragauskas, UT-ORNL Governor’s Chair for Biorefining, Biosciences Division
Anthony Walker, Environmental Sciences Division
Jiaqiang Yan, Materials Science and Technology Division
David Mandrus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is named on the list with ORNL as his second affiliation. Michael Naguib, also listed as affiliated with ORNL, was an ORNL Wigner fellow from 2014 to 2017 and is now an assistant professor at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The methodology draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries and research institutions where these citation elite are based.
