Professors Jing Li and Tewodros Asefa were both named Highly Cited Researchers for 2019! This year marks the first time more than one CCB faculty member made it to the list, a 25% contribution to the university’s overall list.
Highly Cited Researchers (HCRs) represent world’s most influential researchers with their paper citations ranking in the top 1% of their fields according to Web of Science. Because all HCR records are reviewed for negative factors like retractions, misconduct, and extreme self-citation, all those included prove to be community-supportive research influencers.
The annual HCR list aims to recognize influential researchers in the sciences and social sciences from around the world, so inclusion on the list is extremely noteworthy. Our department is very proud of this exceptional achievement.
