Several Florida State University researchers are among the most cited academics worldwide, according to the annual Highly Cited Researchers 2022 list from Clarivate, a data and analytics company.

The annual list identifies researchers who demonstrated significant influence in their chosen field or fields through the publication of multiple highly cited papers during the last decade. Their names are drawn from the publications that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and publication year in the Web of Science™ citation index.

This year’s list includes the late Michael Davidson, a microscopy expert who worked at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory; Professor of Scientific Computing Alan Lemmon; Associate Professor of Biological Science Emily Moriarty Lemmon; Professor of Psychology Thomas Joiner; and Assistant Professor of Psychology Jessica Ribeiro.

“Florida State University has a long track record of supporting highly productive and relevant researchers,” said Vice President for Research Stacey Patterson. “This list illustrates how valued these researchers are in their respective fields and how they’ve produced fundamental work others can build upon to move the area forward.”

The methodology that determines the “who’s who” of influential researchers draws on the data and analysis performed by bibliometric experts and data scientists at the Institute for Scientific Information™ at Clarivate. It also uses the tallies to identify the countries and research institutions where these citation elite are based.

“Research fuels the race for knowledge, and it is important that nations and institutions celebrate the individuals who drive the wheel of innovation,” said David Pendlebury, head of research analysis at the Institute for Scientific Information. “The Highly Cited Researchers list identifies and celebrates exceptional individual researchers at Florida State University who are having a significant impact on the research community as evidenced by the rate at which their work is being cited by their peers. These individuals are helping to transform human ingenuity into our world’s greatest breakthroughs — and it is an honor to celebrate their achievements.”
