Seven GLBRC researchers named to 2016 "highly cited" list

he Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center (GLBRC) had reason to celebrate when Clarivate Analytics – formerly the Intellectual Property & Science business of Thomson Reuters – recently released its 2016 list of “Highly Cited Researchers” in the natural and social sciences.

Seven GLBRC researchers are recognized on the 2016 list, which honors approximately 3,000 scientists from around the globe who have been most cited by their peers and are considered to be among the world’s most highly influential scientific minds. The list is based on analysis of peer-reviewed research paper and manuscript citations between 2004 and 2014, in 22 broad natural and social science disciplines.

“The presence of these GLBRC researchers on the ‘Highly Cited’ list is a clear sign of the relevance of our research priorities,” says GLBRC director Tim Donohue. “The list affirms the impact of GLBRC findings in supporting a cellulosic bioindustry that can create jobs locally, elsewhere in the U.S., and around the world.”
