Thomson Reuters elects three scientists of the institute as Highly Cited Researchers

The publishing company Thomson Reuters honors the most frequently cited scientists in the world - the “Highly Cited Researchers”. The Media Company from New York has now brought out their ranking list for 2014. Among those researchers whose publications are highly cited three chemists from the Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung can be found: Alois Fürstner, Ben List and Ferdi Schüth. According to Thomson Reuters they are among the top 1% most cited authors for their subject and therefore among the most influential scientists of their research fields.

Scientific publications from the period 2002-2012 build the basis for this ranking. Thomson Reuter describes the authors of the publications as scientists with “exceptionally large influence”. More than 3200 scientists from 21 research fields are listed in total, including 400 chemists.
