Beijer Institute researchers among the world’s most cited – again

The Beijer Institute’s director Carl Folke and programme director Max Troell are both listed on the exclusive 2023 Clarivate Analytics overview of the world’s most cited researchers.

The list recognizes world-class researchers selected for their exceptional research performance, demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in Web of Science.

“Highly Cited Researchers have demonstrated significant and broad influence reflected in their publication of multiple highly cited papers over the last decade”, Clarivate Analytics states on their webpage.

For Max Troell it is the second time to make the list and he is listed under the interdisciplinary “Cross-Field” category. Carl Folke has been among the world’s most highly cited since the start of the list in 2014. This year, heis included in the “Social Sciences” category.

The Clarivate ranking is based on an analysis of publications and citations in scientific journals over a period of eleven years (January 2012 to December 2022). As a basis, Clarivate uses the Web of Science database.
