Five PNNL Researchers Named Most Cited
Five researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have been named to a comprehensive list of the world's most referenced scientists.
The researchers are named in Thomson Reuters' Highly Cited Researchers 2014. The list includes more than 3,200 researchers whose scientific publications were in the top 1 percent of papers receiving the most references. Only 250 researchers in each field were selected based on total citations to their papers published during this period. The ranking was compiled using InCites, a Thomson Reuters analytical tool that combed their database of indexed published papers from 2002-2012.
The five PNNL researchers and their most cited subject areas are:
- Jun Liu: chemistry, engineering and materials science
- Alex Guenther: geosciences
- Phil Rasch: geosciences
- Yuyan Shao: engineering
- Yuehe Lin: chemistry (Washington State University professor, has joint appointment with PNNL)
