Highly Cited Researchers

Professor Verstraete (Laboratory of Microbial Ecology and Technology) has been included in the updated list of 'Highly Cited Researchers 2014' which represents some of world’s leading scientific minds. This list has been generated by Thomson Reuters and complements a previously published list that can be found on http://highlycited.com/. To identify influential researchers, field-by-field, Thomson Reuters now only focussed on the period 2002-2012 and only 'highly cited papers' were considered: those that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year indexed in the Web of Science. Having written several 1% papers was interpreted as a mark of exceptional impact, rewarded by selection for this prestigious list. Professor Verstraete is one of the 26 researchers from Ghent University who are included in the list.
