Eighteen McMaster researchers have been named on the 2020 international list of highly cited researchers, 4 more than last year. Among them are contributors to the McMaster Textbook of Internal Medicine.

The list, which is compiled annually by Clarivate Analytics, recognizes researchers who have had significant and broad influence within their fields, or across disciplines. Researchers whose work is on the list are in the top 1% of citations for field and year in Web of Science, a citation index.

This year, more than 6000 were included on the list, including 26 Nobel laureates. Those named represent approximately 1 in every 1000 researchers in the sciences and social sciences.

We are truly delighted to see the names of so many contributors to the McMaster Textbook of Internal Medicine in this prestigious group.

The McMaster researchers on the list are:

  • Elie Akl (Clinical scholar, Department of Medicine)
  • Altaf Arain (School of Earth, Environment and Society)
  • Jan Brozek (Department of Health Research Methods, Evidence and Impact; author in the McMaster Textbook)

“Congratulations to our highly cited researchers, who have had significant influence and impact across a number of fields,” says Karen Mossman, McMaster’s vice-president, research. “As we all continue to grapple with the ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic, the important role of research in the world has never been more evident.”
