NGI shines in the list of most cited scientists


Researchers from the National Graphene Institute (NGI) in Manchester feature prominently in a new list of the most frequently cited academics in science over the past decade, providing more than half of the University of Manchester’s overall contribution to study.

The 2021 list, compiled by global data analytics company Clarivate and published on Nov. 16, features eight researchers based at NGI, out of a total of 15 from UoM who appear in the analysis.

The statistics cover the period 2010-2020, ranking the 1% most cited by citations for the field and the year via the online research tool Science Web, integrating natural sciences, engineering, health, business and social sciences.

NGI researchers are listed below:

Three NGI staff (Geim, Gorbachev and Grigorieva) are among 10 physicists working in the UK who made this year’s list. Only Cambridge (2) also had more than one scholar in the UK Physics Ranking.

Over the past decade, with the opening of £ 61million National Graphene Institute in 2015 and £ 60 million Graphene Engineering Innovation Center in 2018, the University of Manchester consolidated its place as a hotbed of research on graphene and other 2D materials, leading both basic science and translational R&D in products and applications.

NGI Director Professor Falko (photo, right) said: ‘Cutting-edge research is a combination of singular vortices, generated by exceptional individuals. The NGI is a home for many of these people, and we are constantly on the lookout for new talent, providing them with excellent infrastructure and providing a unique intellectual environment.

The Clarivate report lists 6,600 researchers from over 1,300 institutions and draws on statistics from around 12 million articles in over 12,000 journals.

Overall, the UK ranks third with 492 researchers on the global list (7.5%), behind the US (39.7%) and China (14.2%), but the report notes that the UK exceeds its weight, stating that the result “is particularly high number of researchers at the top of their field in terms of the impact of citations, given that the UK has a population 1/5 the size the United States and 1/20 the size of mainland China. “

By institution, Harvard University leads the list with 214 researchers, ahead of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (194). The University of Oxford is the UK’s leading institution, ranked 10th in the world with 51.
