Two researchers from the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering are among the 6,938 individuals on the annual Highly Cited Researchers list compiled by Clarivate Analytics. Fifty-six total researchers from Johns Hopkins are represented on this list this year.

Using qualitative and quantitative analysis to identify researchers from across the globe whose work holds broad influence, the list is drawn from highly cited papers that rank in the top percentile of citations for field and publication year over the past decade.

Celebrating research achievement in 21 fields within the sciences and social sciences, the list uses Essential Science Indicators, or ESIs, to limit the disadvantages of early- and mid-career scientists. This year, Clarivate extended the qualitative analysis of the list to address concerns about potential misconduct, including plagiarism and falsified peer review.

Of the 6,938 individuals named to the list, 2,764 come from the United States—roughly 38% of the list. Johns Hopkins ranks 12th among global institutions in terms of number of researchers named to the list, and it is one of 51 institutions that is home to 26 or more Highly Cited Researchers.
