Influential academics are among the world’s most highly-cited researchers

November 17th, 2022

Seven University of Nottingham academics are among the world’s most highly cited researchers.

The prestigious Highly Cited Researcher list, which is collated by Web of Science to celebrate scientists and social scientists who demonstrate significant influence through publication of multiple papers.

Professor Neil Crout, Interim Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, said: “I am delighted to once again celebrate the influence of our researchers, in this case those working in sciences and social sciences. It is also an opportunity to put this success in the context of our commitment to changing culture around publication metrics and supporting diversity.

“As signatories of DORA – the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment – the university is committed to avoiding journal-based metrics as a surrogate measure of the quality of individual research articles, and considering the value and impact of all research outputs and a broad range of impact measures. Nevertheless, it is lovely to see our academics recognised  by Web of Science and Clarivate.”

Nottingham’s highly cited researchers are:

Simon Gosling, Professor of Climate Risk and Environmental Modelling, School of Geography [Pictured above]

Stamatios Sotiropoulos, Professor of Computational Neuroimaging, School of Medicine

Morgan Alexander, Professor of Biomedical Surfaces, School of Pharmacy

Steve Alexander, Associate Professor of Molecular Pharmacology, School of Life Sciences

Clive Roberts, Professor of Pharmaceutical Nanotechnology, School of Life Sciences

Gerardo Adesso, Professor of Mathematical Physics, School of Mathematical Sciences

Malcolm Bennett, Professor of Plant Sciences, School of Biosciences

Six of the researchers also featured in 2021’s list and are joined this year by Professor Gosling (who, like many of his peers here, has previously featured in Clarivate’s annual listing).
