Moffitt and Caspi on 'Highly Cited' List

Terrie Moffitt and Avshalom Caspi are two of the 44 Duke faculty included on the 2018 Highly Cited Researchers list compiled by Clarivate Analytics and Web of Science.

Duke is tied for 12th in the worldwide rankings by number of highly cited researchers this year. Duke is 9th among U.S. institutions, which are by far the most-cited institutions.

A high citation rate is an indication that a researcher’s work is influential in their field. In both 2016 and 2017, Duke was the fifth-highest cited U.S. institution.

This year's list of 6,078 names recognizes world-class researchers for their production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for their field and over the past decade (2006 to 2016), based on Web of Science data. Clarivate’s web site allows users to explore the data further: https://hcr.clarivate.com/

“The Highly Cited Researchers 2018 list helps to identify the researchers who are having the greatest impact on the research community as measured by the rate at which their work is being cited by others and that contributes so greatly to extending the frontier and gaining knowledge and innovations for society,” said Annette Thomas, CEO of the Scientific & Academic Research group at Clarivate Analytics.
